Five Iron Golf, the nation’s leading indoor golf and entertainment experience, announced today it will open its first West Coast location in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Founded in Manhattan in 2017, Five Iron Golf has since expanded to nine total locations across six cities from the East Coast to Las Vegas, and brings with it a reputation for turning traditional golf on its head, celebrating the unconventional, and energizing communities through accessible and enjoyable golf experiences.
Five Iron Golf Seattle will occupy just under 12,000 square feet inside of WeWork Capitol Hill, and will be home to twelve custom-built golf simulators featuring multiple high-speed cameras to capture every angle of the golf swing. The new location also will offer complimentary top-of-the-line equipment, custom club fitting at The Fitting Lab — recently named a Golf Digest Top 100 Clubfitter — widescreen TVs, shuffleboard, and a full-service restaurant and bar serving creatively curated and seasonal fare. The colorful, urban space will provide guests with a break from the ordinary and an opportunity to practice and play like the pros with actionable data, instant video analysis, and virtual rounds on close to two hundred of the world’s greatest courses.
“We are thrilled to have Five Iron Golf join our Capitol Hill community,” said Aaron Romigh, West Territory Vice President for WeWork. “WeWork is built on innovation and creating inspiring, flexible spaces – spaces that inspire our member companies to come together, to collaborate. Having Five Iron join our community was an easy decision given their success in connecting urban communities through shared golf experiences.”
The Seattle location will feature Five Iron Golf’s signature design aesthetic, which is anchored in creating a multi-sensory interior through the blending of graffiti, murals from local artists, neon signs, and modern lounge furniture. The dynamic atmosphere fuses energy and playfulness with comfort, offering the local community a wide range of activities, including casual play, leagues, private lessons, clinics, and social events.
“Five Iron’s mission is rooted in inspiring and connecting people through golf while celebrating creativity and inclusivity,” says Jared Solomon, CEO and Co-Founder of Five Iron Golf. “Seattle’s rich culture paired with its dedication to growing a community of originality makes it a perfect match and we are delighted to invite the residents of Seattle to play.”
Five Iron Golf Seattle will be located at 1525 11th Avenue and begin construction this fall with a goal of opening to the public by the end of 2021. Follow Five Iron Golf on social at @fiveirongolf for the latest news and announcements.
