MACKLEMORE-BACKED INDOOR GOLF VENUE OPENS IN SEATTLE’S CAPITOL HILL
Five Iron Golf’s first West Coast location is a community hub featuring 12 state-of-the-art golf simulators and a full restaurant and bar
SEATTLE (March 9, 2022) – Five Iron Golf, the nation’s leading indoor golf and entertainment experience, recently opened its first West Coast location in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, backed by Seattle musical artist Macklemore. Similar to its ten locations nationwide, Five Iron Golf brings the neighborhood the brand’s signature design aesthetic, anchored in creating a multisensory interior through the blending of graffiti, murals by local artists such as John Osgood, clever neon signs and modern lounge furniture. Avid players and entertainment seekers alike are welcome to enjoy casual play, leagues, private lessons, clinics and more on their twelve custom-built TrackMan Golf simulators.
“Five Iron Golf inspires and connects people through golf while celebrating the diverse and inclusive vibe of each city,” said Nora Dunnan, co-founder and chief development officer. “We want to provide a hub where Seattle’s local community can come together to enjoy the unconventional, take part in friendly competition, and energize their social events with a new kind of experience.”
Avid golfer and proud Seattleite, Macklemore inspired Five Iron Golf to open the Seattle location. Now, as brand ambassador and co-owner, Macklemore will further his goal of encouraging participation in the sport by making golf more accessible.
“It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played golf before or if you’re a scratch golfer, Five Iron’s mission is all about getting more people involved in the game,” said Macklemore. “I love having them in my city and I’m excited to work with the team to grow the game.”
Five Iron Golf Seattle occupies just under 12,000 square feet inside of WeWork Capitol Hill. Its twelve custom-built simulators each feature its own lounge area, high-speed cameras to capture every angle of the golf swing, complimentary use of the highest-quality clubs, flat screen TVs and more. The colorful, urban space, available for individual and group play or buy-out event bookings, has a full-service restaurant and bar serving creatively curated and seasonal fare.
Macklemore and the Five Iron Golf team will host a grand-opening event on March 30 at Five Iron Golf Seattle, located at 1525 11th Avenue. For more information, please visit fiveirongolf.com or follow Five Iron Golf on Instagram @FiveIronGolf.
