Real Estate In-Depth | January 5, 2023
WEST NYACK—Golfzon, a golf simulator firm, and Troon, a leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, have partnered to launch Golfzon Social, a state-of-the-art indoor golf entertainment venue. The first two locations are set to open in early 2023 in Rockland and Westchester counties.
Seeking to attract non-golfers, avid golfers, and casual golfers alike, each location will feature a creative, chef-driven menu, hand-crafted cocktails, local craft beers and a curated wine list.
Golfzon Social Palisades Center is scheduled to open in January 2023 and will be located within the Palisades Center mall in West Nyack. This location will feature 22 TwoVision simulator bays, a full bar, food truck style dining and flat screen TVs throughout. The store will total 20,820 square feet and will be located on Level Three near the Food Court. The location will have an exterior entrance on the I-87 side of the building.
“We’re honored Golfzon and Troon have chosen Palisades Center to launch Golfzon Social,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center. “Golfzon Social will keep golfers engaged with the sport throughout the year and gives everyone else another great place to have fun.”
Golfzon Scarsdale will open in March 2023 and will be located at 691 Central Park Ave. in Scarsdale and will feature 16 TwoVision bays surrounding a central bar and dining area.
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.
“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.”
“The marriage of a best-in-class food and beverage experience with Golfzon’s state-of-the-art technology will ensure the creation of a special place where people can come together to play, compete, socialize, and most importantly, have fun,” said Tim Schantz, president and chief executive officer, Troon. “These two new gathering spots are unlike anything else in the region. We look forward to bringing Golfzon Social to many other cities in the near future.”
Troon is managing all aspects of the new venues, from pre-opening development work and project management, to guest service and golf instruction, to food and beverage operations. Golfzon is providing its award-winning simulators and team of service technicians.
