Drive Shack (the “Company”) is where players of every slice or fade can kick back, kick it up, or kick aside everything they know about the game.  It’s where you can play the game your way, with your friends, the kids, or just with a couple of beers.  It’s the place where fun is bound to happen, no matter your drive.  

Drive Shack is an entertainment company that combines golf, competition, dining, and fun.  Those who want to enjoy the facility, but not play, can spectate from one of Drive Shack’s bar and restaurant areas, or spend time in the game lounge.  Drive Shack is poised to become the go-to entertainment outlet for golfers and non-golfers alike.
