A Stroke of Luck
Several years ago Adam and Trista Tallman attended a friend’s wedding in the Chicago area and had the opportunity to play on a golf simulator. They thought it was great fun, and may be well received in their neck of the woods, in Macoupin County. After researching the cost, they put that plan on hold.
However, with the opening of Dingers, there was room for such a simulator in the facility.
“My wife said, ‘Do you want to try putting in a simulator?’ and of course I said ‘Heck, yeah!” Tallman explained, “So we took the plunge.”
Now, with Dingers on one side of the Old Drew Ford building, on the other side is On The Fringe, a premier indoor golf simulator driving range. And it is impressive! This virtual reality game gives players of all ages and abilities the chance to play the best courses: Torrey Pines, Pebble Beach, Stone Canyon…even the PGA National course!
And it doesn’t matter what the weather is outside – rain or shine, wind, ice or snow – you can golf year ‘round at On the Fringe.
It’s just like a real game of golf, except you don’t have to chase the ball. Bring your clubs, choose your course, even select the weather and then tee off! But with this simulator you will receive detailed information with every stroke including yardage, elevation and wind speed, spin rate, carry, launch angle, how you hit off the face and all the analytics you need to help improve your game.
You can also bring your own snacks and BYOB!
“This is a great family activity or date night event,” Tallman said. “And just like Dingers, everything is scheduled and paid online for convenience. And it’s all indoors, so the weather doesn’t matter.”
Pricing for On the Fringe starts at $33/hour. The more hours you buy, the cheaper per hour the time is. And packages can be split among friends to make it cheaper for everyone. Gift certificates make great Christmas gifts too!

WHAT MATTERS MOST
So why is Adam Tallman doing all this? Well he knows a thing or two, because he has seen a thing or two.
Seriously. He is a Farmers Insurance Agent, and has been for seven years. And he didn’t step into an established agency
either. Tallman started his insurance business from scratch, and has built it from the ground up.
“My philosophy definitely goes back to that catch phrase,” he said. “I strive to give my clients the best product and service they need.”
As a Farmers Agent, Tallman offers various products including home and auto insurance, life insurance and commercial insurance.
“The insurance company, and the sports facilities go hand-in-hand.” Tallman said. “That’s why my wife and I have put so much money and sweat equity into this
insurance business, Dingers and On the Fringe. To plan, provide for and protect what matters most.”
“We are showing our kids Addisyn (9) and Jaxon (5) that if you put in the time, and work hard at something you believe in, you can do anything.
