State-of-the-art indoor golf entertainment venue provides energetic and inviting atmosphere, chef-driven menu, full bar and more
(CHANTILLY, Va.) Golfzon, the world leader in golf simulator market share, and Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, announces the opening of its first Golfzon Social location today, February 21, at the Palisades Center in West Nyack, NY.
Golfzon Social 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 avid golfers, casual golfers and non-golfers alike, it features a creative, chef-driven menu, hand-crafted cocktails and craft beers. An industry-leading audio visual package makes Golfzon Social the destination for sports viewing and for those looking to go beyond the local sports bar.
The Palisades Center mall location features 22 TwoVision simulator bays and flat screen TVs throughout. The vibe is modern and is designed to be an excellent venue for hosting events or a night out. A second Golfzon Social location is opening in Scarsdale, N.Y. in Spring 2023. To learn more or book simulator time, please visit www.golfzonsocial.com.
“Golfzon Social sets a new standard for off-course golf entertainment and the Palisades Center location is a showcase for the vision we will be bringing to many more facilities in the near future,” says Tommy Lim, CEO of Golfzon North America. “While golf is at its core, the facility caters to everyone who is looking for a fun and relaxing time, regardless of their prowess on the course.”
The Golfzon Social experience delivers countless ways to socialize, dine and play 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.
In October 2021, Troon and Golfzon announced a strategic partnership, wherein Troon has invested in Golfzon and their market-leading technology. Golfzon and Troon have an aggressive plan to roll-out additional Golfzon Social locations in the coming years in multiple cities across North America.
“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.”
One of the big differentiators between Golfzon Social and its competitors is the unparalleled technology and innovation that comes with the TwoVision simulator. Unveiled last year 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, 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% crisper than previous generations, as well as an LED putting guide to read greens.
RealFood Hospitality, Strategy & Design, a core Troon operating brand, is leading the food and beverage development and design for Golfzon Social locations. The menu is designed to bring people together and includes shareable appetizers that are familiar, approachable and golf-friendly, as well as larger meals suitable for a date night or business meeting – all with a chef’s twist. Food is available for either dine-in or takeout and is reflective of a variety of pan global culinary influences, while also including locally sourced fare. The beverage menu will feature a selection of craft cocktails and craft beers, including the 64 oz. Golfzon growler.
