The popular indoor driving range, Top Golf, has its sights set on St. Petersburg. The franchise has recently released plans to move to the area in either late 2019 or early 2020. According to ABC Action News, the new location will be stationed in between Roosevelt Boulevard and Ulmerton road. The St. Pete location will join Brandon in being the only cities in the Tampa Bay area to feature the franchise.
Top Golf differs from traditional driving ranges as they insert tiny microchips into their golf balls to allow players to track the distance of their swing. Players then accumulate points by hitting or being in close range of stationary targets. According to the franchise’s website, they soon plan to add technology that allows players to view a real- time trace of their ball’s path.
The establishment features an “eater-tainment” style design as it incorporates the entertainment factor, through the multi-level driving range, and combines it with an extensive food and drink menu. The menu specializes in hand crafted cocktails and traditional American food. The location is suitable for families, date nights and large gatherings.
St. Petersburg is ranked as one of the top cities in the Tampa Bay area to live in due to its high-ranking public schools and popular nightlife venues according to Niche.com. St. Pete is also ranked #5 in the United States as one of top cites to retire in. The opening of the new location further adds to the cities overall appeal. This can also lead to an increase in property value for homes in surrounding neighborhoods. The more popular attractions a city has, the more people will want to live there.
