The inside story of Rain or Shine Golf

May 30, 2021 09:43 AM

In this week's episode, host Paul Liberatore interviews Zach Vanderveldt from Rain or Shine Golf.

Rain or Shine Golf founder Shawn Foley, Vanderveldt's business partner, spent countless hours chipping golf balls around the house and building mini-golf courses to improve his short game during the long Wisconsin winters. Golf was a family affair for the Foleys, and Shawn and his father made many attempts at creating at-home golf experiences. But one instance stood out the most.

When Foley was in high school, the family basement flooded. His family decided to add a subfloor in the event of another flood. As part of that, they built a 200 square-foot putting green, laying turf on top and drilling cups into the floor. That experience was the inspiration for the Rain or Shine brand. Today, the company is the industry’s leading unbiased resource to help golfers outfit their home with a dream simulator setup.
