Troon, an industry leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is currently serving in an advisory role – and is expected to manage – a new golf entertainment venue coming to Bettendorf, Iowa / Quad Cities.
Located across the street from TBK Bank Sports Complex, this 70,000+ square-foot entertainment venue is being developed by Middle & Forest Grove, LLC, a new entity created by local investors Ryan Hintze, Doug Kratz, Kevin Koellner & Ben Logsdon. The to-be-named project is currently in the schematic design phase with construction expected to begin this spring and completed by summer/fall 2023.
Guests of the new three-level golf entertainment venue will experience TopTracer Range technology in 60+ climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, chef-driven menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round entertainment. Numerous high-definition televisions will be located throughout the facility with one over-sized 4K LED television – estimated to be the largest (indoor) in the state of Iowa – in the main bar area.
Year-round programming will include events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, corporate events, showers, graduation parties, concerts, charity events and more. The venue will also feature a video gaming space, which will include an immersive virtual reality platform, escape rooms, multi-sport simulators and more high-tech games. Also included will be large event space, future rooftop patio, and a common plaza area outside the venue.
The development will also feature several multi-sport (Baseball, Softball and Soccer) turf fields, which will be managed by TBK Bank Sports Complex.
“Our group is beyond excited to bring this type of golf entertainment venue to the Quad Cities. We want to continue to grow our community, stimulate our local economy and support our neighborhood restaurants/retailers. This entertainment venue is something we have been working toward for quite some time now, and we are delighted we finally get to share it with the public,” said Ryan Hintze, chief executive officer of Middle & Forest Grove, LLC. “This venue will be a place with activities the entire family can enjoy. We have a lot more exciting features that are in the works, we will continue to update as we progress.”
The group has created a temporary website for construction and development updates: www.golfmfgi80.com.
