Five Iron Golf, the nation’s leading indoor golf and entertainment experience, recently opened its first West Coast location in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, backed by Seattle musical artist Macklemore. Similar to its ten locations nationwide, Five Iron Golf brings the neighborhood the brand’s signature design aesthetic, anchored in creating a multisensory interior through the blending of graffiti, murals by local artists such as John Osgood, clever neon signs and modern lounge furniture. Avid players and entertainment seekers alike are welcome to enjoy casual play, leagues, private lessons, clinics and more on their twelve custom-built TrackMan Golf simulators.
“Five Iron Golf inspires and connects people through golf while celebrating the diverse and inclusive vibe of each city,” said Nora Dunnan, co-founder and chief development officer. “We want to provide a hub where Seattle’s local community can come together to enjoy the unconventional, take part in friendly competition, and energize their social events with a new kind of experience.”
Avid golfer and proud Seattleite Macklemore, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, inspired Five Iron Golf to open the Seattle location. Now, as brand ambassador and co-owner, Haggerty will further his goal of encouraging participation in the sport by making golf more accessible.
“It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played golf before or if you’re a scratch golfer, Five Iron’s mission is all about getting more people involved in the game. I love having them in my city and I’m excited to work with the team to grow the game.” said Haggerty.
Five Iron Golf Seattle occupies just under 12,000 square feet inside of WeWork Capitol Hill. Its twelve custom-built simulators each feature its own lounge area, high-speed cameras to capture every angle of the golf swing, complimentary use of the highest-quality clubs, flat screen TVs and more. The colorful, urban space, available for individual and group play or buy-out event bookings, has a full-service restaurant and bar serving creatively curated and seasonal fare.
Haggerty and the Five Iron Golf team will host a grand-opening event on March 30. For more information on Five Iron Golf Seattle or the event, please reach out to email@example.com and follow Five Iron Golf on social media @FiveIronGolf.
