If you’ve driven by the Palm Beach International Airport, you may be wondering what that large, open-faced building with extreme netting around an empty field will be. If you’re a golfer or a fan of sports in general, you’re going to want to keep reading.
Almost two years ago, Palm Beach County residents were excited to hear that Top Golf – one of the most trending new golf entertainment complexes – would be coming to West Palm Beach.
But with over 50 locations in the United States, the closest Top Golf venue for the residents of Palm Beach and Martin County to enjoy is still located more than hour away in the city of Miami Gardens.
The idea for Top Golf coming to West Palm Beach was to restore the West Palm Beach Municipal Golf Course but it has been saddled with delays and disruptions in negotiations for months on end.
Enter Drive Shack – the leading competitor for Top Golf that has been making waves around the country with several expected openings including a new facility near Belvedere and I-95 just outside the Palm Beach International Airport.
The Drive Shack facility is a $30 million, fully interactive golf driving range and entertainment center. You and your group can launch golf balls from decks on three different floors towards targets that are featured within interactive games hosted by touchscreen computers in each hitting bay.
Unlike Top Golf, Drive Shack offers TrackMan technology – a Doppler radar technology that is familiar to anyone who has watched a professional golf tournament in the past couple years. A professional golf instructor will also be on staff for avid golfers who want to work on their game and those who want to learn.
Also included is a terrace bar with a DJ, full food and bar menus, and even a third-floor lounge and game area for children (and the young at heart) to enjoy. It’s also a great place to host a business event or team building activity as there will be a conference room available for rent as well.
Set to open in the next couple months, Drive Shack will bring 400 new jobs to our community and has already started to donate to and help local charities in the local communities.
So get ready, Palm Beach – golf is being taken to a new level (3 of them to be exact) right here in our beautiful city. To learn more about Drive Shack, visit: https://www.driveshack.com/
