Drive Shack opens by Palm Beach International airport


Staff report

Practice your drive at the new three-story, 96-bay Drive Shack.

The 65,000-square-foot golf entertainment venue opened last month in West Palm Beach by PBI airport at 1710 Belvedere Road.

At Drive Shack you can play a golf course like St. Andrews or PGA National, practice your swing on the range or play one of their signature interactive golfing games.

Golfers rent a bay per hour. Up to six players can be assigned to one bay. Pricing varies depend-ing on the time of day. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the hourly rate is $25, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the rate is $35 and from 5 p.m. to close costs $45 an hour.

Drive Shack opens at 9 a.m. daily and closes at midnight Sunday-Thursday and 1 a.m. on the weekends.

There are bays on all three levels of the facility. The second floor also houses a restaurant and bar. On the third floor there is an outdoor bar and deck with fire pits. There are more than 300 televi-sions located throughout the venue.

In addition to golf, there are arcade games, Jenga, cornhole and other family friendly activities.

The restaurant is open to golfers and non-golfers. You can also order food directly to your bay to eat while you play.

Highlights on the menu include truffle flatbreads, pork wings and watermelon poke bowls. For dessert, there are specialty ice cream sandwiches featuring locally influenced flavors – like the “Chilly Palmer,” a lemon shortbread cookie sandwich filled with sweet tea ice cream and a key lime pie.

A brunch menu is offered on the weekend with items like avocado toast, chicken and biscuits and boozy cereal.

Drive Shack – with the support of 2nd Swing and the PGA TOUR Superstore – will be collecting used clubs to help benefit The First Tee and support its mission to positively impact the lives of young people through the game of golf. Swing by Drive Shack until Nov. 3, to donate golf clubs – anything from a single iron to a putter to a full set of clubs. In return, those donating clubs can receive up to $100 of free BayPlay.

Donated clubs will be valued and converted to cash donations and all Drive4Change proceeds will be given directly to The First Tee of The Palm Beaches. In addition, Drive Shack with the support of the PGA TOUR Superstore – Delray Beach, will be presenting The First Tee of The Palm Beaches with brand new sets of junior golf clubs to give to the young members they serve.
