PopStroke Entertainment, co-owned by Tiger Woods, recently announced the addition of two local property agreements in the Sarasota-Manatee and Tampa Bay markets. The Sarasota-Manatee PopStroke will be in the Mall at University Town Center area, outside Lakewood Ranch, while the Tampa location will be in Cypress Creek Town Center in central Pasco County.
"These are dynamic, high-growth markets supported by excellent ownership groups," co-owner Greg Bartoli says in a release. "We are very excited to expand our unique golf entertainment experience across the United States, particularly in markets supported by surging population growth and great climates."
The company is planning to build two 18-hole putting courses for each property that features synthetic turfs while incorporating fairways, bunkers and rough as seen on traditional golf courses. The new Sarasota location will be in the East District at UTC where Holidays on the Green and the circus were previously held.
"I am very excited about our expansion plans," says Woods in the release. "Putting is a universal part of golf that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. It has been rewarding to see the broad and diverse group of guests enjoying their experience at PopStroke, and I look forward to seeing players make those long putts in locations throughout the South and Southwest. Each new location will have a different course design and layout giving players unique putting challenges as they travel across the country."
Founded in 2018, PopStroke is a technology-infused golf-entertainment concept featuring Tiger Woods and his TGR Design team's 36-hole putting facility, coupled with an outdoor dining area with a full menu, expansive variety of craft beer, wine, signature cocktails, ice cream, outdoor games and a playground. The concept of the company is to merge experiential golf and casual dining with dynamic, technologically advanced competitive golf environment with food and beverage.
The company is headquartered in Jupiter and offers a wide variety of craft beer, wine, ice cream, and food at every location while delivering an interactive and competitive golf experience for all players. The company previously opened a location in Fort Myers.
