NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Iron Golf, a brand that prides itself on pushing the boundaries of traditional golf by simultaneously exceeding the needs of core golfers, entertainment enthusiasts, and everyone in between, is coming to Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C.
Five Iron Golf Las Vegas, located at 3215 South Rancho Drive, is set to launch this January in the newly opened AREA15, an immersive art, event, and entertainment complex just off the Las Vegas Strip. AREA15 is the world's first purpose-built experiential entertainment complex offering live events, immersive activations, monumental art installations, extraordinary design elements, unique retail, ground-breaking technology, bars and eateries and much more. Five Iron Golf's second floor, 6,200 square-foot space will include eight simulators, a putting green, and the quintessential Five Iron Golf entertainment offerings, including a full bar, widescreen TVs, shuffleboard, and more.
"From the colorful murals on our walls to the lounge areas surrounding each simulator to the events and experiences we host, every detail in every Five Iron is designed to create a vibe that drives connection and community," says Five Iron Golf's Co-Founder and COO Nora Dunnan. "When we learned about AREA15's vision to reimagine Las Vegas' culture by bringing immersive experiences like Five Iron into one vibrant, design-focused space, we knew it was the perfect spot for our West Coast debut."
Bolstering its national presence, Five Iron Golf brings its hallmark golf-centric hangouts to the Mid-Atlantic region with Pittsburgh and Washington D.C.
Five Iron Golf Pittsburgh, the largest of the three with 14,000 square feet, will host eleven custom-designed hitting bays. Aligning with all Five Iron Golf locations, there will be a dedicated golf instruction simulator with additional technology meant for capturing data, analyzing the golf swing, and getting accurate real-time feedback. Five Iron Golf Pittsburgh is projected to open in the spring of 2021 at 2 PPG Place, just outside of the Cultural District in downtown Pittsburgh.
Five Iron Golf D.C., opening in early 2021, will be located at Terrell Place, a historically renovated building. Occupying approximately 12,000 square feet, Five Iron Golf D.C. will be in good company in the heart of Penn Quarter—downtown Washington, D.C.'s most desirable neighborhood for culture, tourism, nightlife, and entertainment. Blocks from the renowned Capital One arena, ten simulators, a putting green, and a variety of alternative entertainment options, including ping-pong, pool and shuffleboard, makes this D.C.'s newest and best pre-game spot for sporting events, concerts, and more.
"Our strategy in expanding to Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas is the same—to create a place for the local golf community to take lessons, practice and play in our leagues, while making golf accessible and entertaining for everyone," says Five Iron Golf's Co-Founder and CEO Jared Solomon. "Expanding into Pittsburgh and D.C. allows us to further target urban golfers in cities rich in history and culture."
With each new venue, Five Iron Golf remains consistent with its mission of providing an accessible and appealing space for golfers and non-golfers alike. Flexible event spaces, full bar service, and dining featuring locally-focused menus are set against a colorful and urban backdrop. Five Iron Golf's commitment to practice and performance is highlighted by top-of-the-line technology, experienced teaching professionals, leagues, club storage, complimentary use of best-in-class equipment, and in-house club fitting services and repairs provided by The Fitting Lab.
