ORLANDO, Fla., April 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Orlando's premier golf-entertainment destination has arrived! Drive Shack – a unique entertainment destination pairing the most advanced golf games and technology with outstanding food and drinks – will officially open on Saturday, April 7, at 3 p.m.
Orlando residents and visitors alike can now make an outing of balling out by indulging in good eats, cold drinks, and long drives at the three-story, indoor/outdoor all-weather golf-entertainment complex.
Located at 7285 Corner Drive in Lake Nona's vibrant Sports and Performance District, Drive Shack's flagship location features 90 hitting bays with a 220-yard range, a Free Play Game Lounge with classic games like shuffleboard, skee-ball and Pac-Man, a full-service restaurant and bar, an outdoor lounge and three fully equipped meeting and event rooms for parties up to 1,000. From scratch golfers to hackers who couldn't hit the fairway with a putter, Drive Shack is the place where fun is bound to happen, no matter your drive.
Each hitting bay features custom seating, complimentary custom Drive Shack golf clubs with unlimited golf balls, dual flat screens with TV on-demand, interactive games enabling guests to compete with other bays and full-service on-call food and drinks from the restaurant. Drive Shack's team of over 400 "shackers" and service staff will be ready to ensure a fun and memorable experience for parties of all sizes.
Drive Shack's signature technology includes new proprietary games like Shackjack, where guests can aim at playing cards that appear over each hole while trying to build a hand of 21 without busting. Or save the Drive Shack Princess by destroying all of the monsters on the range during a rousing game of Monster Hunt. Guests can also take on real courses – like Teton Pines and Linfield National – as if they're actually there, using Drive Shack's virtual technology.
For guests looking to step up their golf game, Drive Shack's expert golf pro offers quality instruction using the latest tips and technology. Lessons are available for players of all ages and skill levels, including individuals and groups, beginner clinics, juniors just starting out or wanting to enhance their skills and even parent-child classes! Clinics will begin in April.
Orlando is now home to the very first Drive Shack. Additional locations are expected to open in Raleigh, N.C., Richmond, Va., West Palm Beach, Fla., Marietta, Ga., and New Orleans, La.
Drive Shack Orlando will be open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. For more information, visit driveshack.com.
