Drive Shack formally announced plans to open a new golf entertainment venue in the Phoenix market. Preliminary approval for the approximately 60,000-square-foot, multi-level complex has been granted and construction will soon be underway. The site is zoned and primed for construction at the southwest corner of Bethany Home Road and 99th Avenue, just off Loop 101. The site is located directly across from University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals. Drive Shack is expected to produce more than 500 positions in the greater Phoenix area.
“Drive Shack’s vision to provide an innovative, vibrant destination for families, young professionals, corporate groups and anyone looking to enjoy a classic sport in a dynamic new way is magnetic. In addition, having this location centered in the heart of the city’s burgeoning West Valley submarket is truly something we look forward to sharing with the community,” said City of Phoenix District 5 Councilman Daniel Valenzuela. “Beyond creating quality jobs and the direct economic impact it’s sure to have in our city, Drive Shack’s approach to working with local businesses is unique and refreshing. We are thrilled to engage and weave them into the fabric of our great city.”
