It’s a hard place to miss if you are driving off I-95 onto Belvedere Rd. in West Palm Beach or near the airport. Drive Shack, a new golf-themed entertainment attraction has landed in the Palm Beaches.
The newcomer is the ultimate social entertainment experience, igniting fun with a mix of interactive golf gaming, food, and drinks. Drive Shack can become a real hub of entertainment the likes Las Vegas, Orlando, and Miami that West Palm Beach was lacking.
No matter where you go to play golf in South Florida, the integral part of Florida golf — water, sand, gators, palms — is present. But Drive Shack is a new experience that adds a fresh alternative to the typical day and nightlife scenes, and the social pleasure of playing golf. Avid golfers will probably love the combination of entertainment and technology as it has the potential for a significant long-term impact on the game of golf. Anyone else will learn the golf industry isn’t a far-reaching cloud.
It opened Friday, October 18 and Jon Stone, General Manager of Drive Shack WPB expects people will have a lot of fun and entertainment with their TrackMan technology that allows guests to track their balls playing live golf courses.”
Drive Shack has five courses loaded into their system with one of those courses being the PGA National Course in Palm Beach Gardens. They also have other interactive games, like the Monster Hunt, a creature-slaying challenge where the goal is to be the first to rescue the Drive Shack princess. Drive Shack’s ranges are equipped with TrackMan™ Range Doppler radar-based technology, providing unparalleled precision ball tracking in real-time.
A rooftop terrace lounge with firepits and views of the open surrounding space can make the social side of the experience the most imaginable of its kind. Retro arcade games, a family-fun entertainment area in the patio downstairs featuring ping-pong, retail options, and a full-service restaurant are also amenities that can make this venue get an edge in the area’s entertainment.
Drive Shack launched its first venue in Orlando, in 2018, and opened three additional locations in the U.S. in 2019. The venue features 90-plus private driving bays where guests can try to top each other at a variety of fun augmented-reality games while they enjoy drinks, food, and socialize. Players can also compete at several retro arcade games dispersed throughout the multi-level venue.
No membership is required to play.
From spacious bars to enjoy local craft beers, wine or cocktails to more than 300-plus TVs around the venue for the latest sporting events to augmented-reality games, fun-filled days of golf and entertainment are here to stay in the Palm Beaches.
