By Dave Daubert
PopStroke Entertainment Group, a national leader in golf entertainment owned by Greg Bartoli, Tiger Woods' TGR Ventures, and TaylorMade Golf Company, today announced its new location opened on Thursday, March 2. The address is 9480 W. Hanna Drive, Glendale, Arizona, in the Westgate Entertainment District. The Glendale location is the seventh PopStroke location. Additional locations scheduled to open in the next four to six months include Talking Stick/ Scottsdale, Arizona, and Delray Beach, Florida.
"We are very excited to introduce our unique entertainment experience to the Glendale-Phoenix community," said Founder Greg Bartoli. "PopStroke is about bringing friends together to enjoy the great game of golf in a fun, dynamic and stress-free environment while enjoying elevated food, cocktails, ice cream, and a host of other amenities. The greater Phoenix metropolitan market is a world-class golf destination with a vibrant and growing mix of families, retirees, and young professionals. The Westgate Entertainment District is an ideal location for our first ever Arizona PopStroke venue."
"I am thrilled to have PopStroke expand into Arizona," said Tiger Woods. "Since we announced our plans, there has been a groundswell of interest, and we are excited to announce an official opening date. PopStroke is a fun way for people of all ages and skill levels to enjoy time with family and friends."
Earlier this year, TaylorMade Golf Company made a material investment in PopStroke to join a powerhouse ownership group that includes Tiger Woods and PopStroke Entertainment founder Greg Bartoli. Central to the partnership is an alignment of family-oriented values, an optimistic stance on golf's future, and a comprehensive growth strategy that aims to bring more people into the game through a fun and accessible golf experience.
"What an exciting time to join the PopStroke team," said David Abeles, TaylorMade President & CEO. "The opening of the Glendale property is a momentous step in the growth of the business, bringing this one-of-a-kind experience to golfers of all ages and abilities in the Phoenix market. We're thrilled with the expansion of PopStroke, but even more so, we're inspired by its potential to bring new people to the game in a welcoming environment."
PopStroke is a technology-infused golf entertainment venue featuring Tiger Woods' TGR Design team's one-of-a-kind golf experience with two 18-hole putting courses. The venue features an outdoor dining area with a full menu, craft beer, wine, signature cocktails, an ice cream parlor, an outdoor game area, and a playground.
TGR Design created two 18-hole putting courses entirely with synthetic turf, incorporating undulations, fairways, bunkers, and rough as seen on traditional golf courses. The Tiger Red Course challenges even the most experienced putters with strong contouring and tricky hole locations. The Tiger Black Course has softened contours to create an ideal course for families and anyone new to golf.
PopStroke's mobile App enhances the experience with a digital scorecard, on-course drink delivery, showcasing scores on a digital scoreboard, and earning loyalty rewards.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on March 1 hosted by PopStroke, government officials, and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. Doors will open to the public on Thursday, March 2 at noon.
The regular operating hours will be Sunday - Wednesday: 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Thursday - Saturday: 10 a.m. - 12 a.m.
