RALEIGH, N.C., Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entertainment company Drive Shack opened the doors to its 65,000-square-foot facility in Raleigh on August 23, 2019.
A social entertainment venue, Drive Shack offers more than just tech-forward golf. Guests can expect 300-plus TVs to take in the latest sporting events, retro arcade games, a rooftop patio with incredible views, and a restaurant and bar serving chef-driven dishes and craft cocktails. Drive Shack's craveable menu consists of shareable fare ranging from mushroom truffle flatbreads and Korean BBQ pork wings to watermelon poke bowls. Guests also enjoy specialty cocktails including lavender margarita, green bloody mary and the cotton candy cocktail as well as a selection of local craft beer, spiked seltzers and canned wine.
The venue boasts 96 private driving bays where players can socialize, dine and partake in a range of games in a climate-controlled space. To bring players the best in golf and gaming technology, Drive Shack utilizes TrackMan™ Range, a Doppler radar-based system that has multiple radars to provide unparalleled precision ball tracking and real-time feedback. Golfers and non-golfers are guaranteed to have fun taking a swing at one of Drive Shack's proprietary interactive games. Players earn points by hitting virtual targets in games like Monster Hunt, where one takes aim at monsters to save the princess, or ShackJack, Drive Shack's play on blackjack. More avid golfers can also practice their shot, virtually, on celebrated courses around the world and get feedback on their swing with Pro Practice, which tracks ball distance, spin and speed.
Drive Shack also hosts a range of special events, including social leagues, boozy brunches, live music, college nights and seasonal and holiday events. Catering to all ages, there's also the Summer Swing Academy offering kids five days of fun and golf training to perfect their swing.
