BOSTON, Mass – Five Iron Golf, the nation’s leading indoor golf and entertainment experience, officially teed off on January 27 with the opening of the company’s sixteenth location and the first in the New England region. The newest Five Iron Golf is located in Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood and promises to bring a new energy to the business-centered area. Five Iron Golf Boston features 15 custom-built TrackMan golf simulators in a 15,000 square-foot space.
The indoor simulators offer golfers the ability to practice and play regardless of impending Nor’easters, gridlocked traffic out of the city, or inconvenient course hours. By offering golfers of all skill levels the chance to tee off at Pebble Beach and nearly 200 other world-renowned courses seven days a week, Five Iron Golf brings an unprecedented level of access to golf in Boston. Locals can test their skills on six Massachusetts courses: Dedham Country & Polo Club (Dedham), Falmouth Country Club (East Falmouth), Kettle Brook Golf Course (Paxton), Miacomet Golf Course (Nantucket), Pine Brook Country Club (Weston) and Wachusett Country Club (West Boylston). With premium amenities such as bag storage, custom club fitting and locker rooms complete with showers, and towel service, Five Iron Golf Boston is the newest attraction in town that’s open to all golfers regardless of handicap.
“We are excited to officially open our doors to the people of Boston who live, work and socialize downtown,” said Seamus O’Sullivan, General Manager. “Five Iron truly has something for everyone. For the avid player, we offer cutting-edge technology, certified instructors, the nation’s largest indoor golf league, club fitting and more, regardless of how much or how well you play. For the entertainment seeker, we are a true ‘eater-tainment’ experience. Our full-service bars with local beer on tap and other classics, curated food menu, widescreen TVs, and custom neon signs and art, make for the perfect venue whether it be for a post-work happy hour or your next party.”
The dynamic entertainment space features Five Iron Golf’s signature design aesthetic, rooted in creating a multisensory experience blending neon lights, modern lounge furniture and local graffiti artists throughout the space, defining an immersive modern golf environment. The competitive nature of Five Iron Golf extends beyond the simulators with classic games like foosball, shuffleboard, Golden Tee and darts, fan favorites for all visitors.
In conjunction with the opening, Five Iron Golf Boston announced a partnership with Mass Golf, offering exclusive perks for Mass Golf members. Five Iron Golf is recognized as an official Mass Golf Members Now Club, enabling Five Iron Golf members and guests to house their Handicap Index at Five Iron Golf Boston. In line with its goal to “make golf for everyone”, Five Iron Golf proudly supports the Mass Golf Youth Fund through the partnership, an organization that contributes to the development and expansion of Mass Golf’s First Tee and Youth on Course programs.
“Everyone who works at Five Iron has a passion for the game, passion for providing top-level service and helping to create meaningful experiences that help grow modern golf,” said James Campbell, Five Iron Golf Boston golf pro. “Now that we are officially open, we can share our mission of making golf for everyone, with easy access to the Boston community. Golfers can take lessons, participate in the country’s largest indoor golf league and more — regardless of weather, traffic, distance or country club fees. We are really open for play, practice and entertainment almost 24/7.”
The Boston location is located at 1 Washington Mall. Prior to opening its doors, Five Iron Golf Boston sold out its Founding Memberships, officially welcoming over 200 Members when doors opened January 27.
