If you want to go somewhere that’s not Topgolf to practice your swing or just have a good time, there’s a new driving range/bar concept opening up just south of the neighborhood at 723 Haskell.
The Goat Ranch, which broke ground in mid-July, says it’s “not your typical driving range.” So if that’s what it’s not, here are three things about what it is:
- It is… trying to “bring golf to the masses and make it fun again.” It plans to do that by offering 15 hitting bays in which customers will hit into a fully-enclosed netted field. “The field will not have your usual driving range targets but will have fun and creative targets that make loud noise when you hit them,” according to the website.
- It is… from the makers of Bowlounge in the design district. There will be a bar and event space built out of an old converted freezer building. “Surrounded with glass dock doors overlooking the driving range, the bar will offer a huge selection of mixed drinks and draft beers,” the website says.
- It is… hiring. Check out this craigslist ad requesting servers and bartenders.
