A new golf and entertainment complex similar to TopGolf Overland Park and the Driv Golf Lounge + Brewhouse proposed for North Kansas City is coming to the Northland as part of the Metro North Crossing redevelopment.
Troon, a global leader in golf course management and development based in Scottsdale, Ariz., will operate the soon-to-be-named, 52,000-square-foot complex at Metro North Crossing, a $187.5 million mixed-use project being developed on the site of the recently demolished Metro North Mall at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 169 and Northwest Barry Road.
The golf and entertainment complex is expected to open in the summer of 2018. It will include 64 climate-controlled, technology-enhanced hitting bays and suites on three levels.
According to a release, the new venue is designed for all ages and skill levels and will differ from other golf entertainment complexes in a variety of ways, including:
- Guests can “play” several famous golf courses from their hitting bay as their golf shots will be projected via high-definition TVs in their bay.
- Guests will have the option of playing unique golf games and competitive target golf games.
- Experienced golfers will enjoy advanced golf ball tracking technology and get real-time data on every swing, including clubhead speed, spin-rate and distance.
- Before and after playing golf, guests will be able to enjoy an 8,000-square-foot sports bar with interactive TVs, a member’s grill and rooftop view lounge.
“The new golf and entertainment complex is a great addition to Metro North Crossing and will be one of the outstanding entertainment venues to come to the Kansas City Northland in recent years,” David Horn, IAS Partners’ project manager for the redevelopment, said in the release. “This will provide an entertaining atmosphere to complement the redevelopment’s retail, other entertainment and luxury apartments. With live entertainment, incredible food and beverage, and outstanding service, it will attract more than just golfers.”
