Two Golf Industry Leaders Band Together to Create a Game-Changing Experience
Golfzon, the world leader in golf simulator market share, and Troon, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, have partnered to launch Golfzon Social, a new, state-of-the-art indoor golf entertainment venue, with the first location having opened in February outside of New York City. A second location in Scarsdale, N.Y., is set to open later in spring of 2023.
Golfzon Social sets a new standard in “eatertainment” that brings together the most technologically advanced golf simulators on the market — Golfzon’s TwoVision — with a stylish, energetic atmosphere for the ultimate social experience. Attracting non-golfers, avid golfers, and casual golfers alike, each location features a creative, chef-driven menu, hand-crafted cocktails, local craft beers, and a curated wine list. An industry-leading audio/visual package makes Golfzon the destination for sports viewing and the people looking to go beyond the local sports bar.
The Golfzon Social experience is designed to deliver countless ways to socialize, dine, and golf. League and tournament play lets avid and casual golfers virtually compete around the world, and a resident PGA professional is available for guidance and lessons, no matter the season or weather. Non-golfers can get started in the game in a non-intimidating, welcoming setting, or enjoy the board and patio games around the venue.
Golfzon Social Palisades Center is located within the popular Palisades Center mall in West Nyack, N.Y. This location features 22 TwoVision simulator bays, a full bar, food truck-style dining, and flat screen TVs throughout. The vibe is very modern, and the space is perfect for hosting events or just going for a night out.
Golfzon Social Scarsdale, slated for a Spring 2023 opening, is located at 691 Central Park Avenue in Scarsdale, N.Y. It will feature 16 TwoVision bays surrounding a central bar and dining area.
“We’ve taken everything into account with the opening of Golfzon Social, from partnering with the best simulator brand in the world to curating an atmosphere and food / beverage options that provide something for everyone,” said Tim Schantz, president and chief executive officer, Troon. “The off-course entertainment trend is only growing and Golfzon Social is set to become a major player in the space.”
Golfzon and Troon have an aggressive plan to roll-out additional Golfzon Social locations in the coming years in multiple cities across North America.
“According to the National Golf Foundation, the number of players who enjoy the game at off-course venues is now nearly 25 million, and it is a trend that is especially popular among young professionals,” said Tommy Lim, CEO of Golfzon North America. “Golfzon Social is the perfect vehicle to service this large and growing population.”
One of the big differentiators between Golfzon Social and its competitors is the unparalleled technology and innovation that comes with the TwoVision simulator. Unveiled in 2022, it is the most-advanced option on the market. Features include high-speed sensors that capture club head and ball flight data for incredibly realistic performance feedback, a 24-way directional moving swing plate that recreates true stand and lie conditions, an auto-tee and ball retrieval system, a virtual caddie to give players advice, and multi-surface mats to imitate the fairway, rough, and bunkers. The system also boasts incredibly realistic graphics that are 130 percent crisper than previous generations, as well as an LED putting guide to read greens.
Troon is managing all aspects of the new venues, from pre-opening development work and project management to guest service and golf instruction, plus food and beverage operations. Golfzon is providing its award-winning simulators and team of service technicians.
