POPSTROKE ANNOUNCES THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE TAMPA/ WESLEY CHAPEL, FLORIDA LOCATION
JUPITER, Fla. (February. 9, 2023) – PopStroke Entertainment Group, a national leader in golf entertainment owned by Greg Bartoli, Tiger Woods’ TGR Ventures, and TaylorMade Golf Company, today announced its PopStroke Tampa/Wesley Chapel location will open on Friday, February 17 at noon. The location is 25297 Sierra Center Blvd., Lutz, Florida, in the Cypress Creek Town Center. The Tampa location is the sixth PopStroke location, the fifth to open in Florida. Additional locations scheduled to open in the next six months are Glendale and Scottsdale, Arizona, and Delray Beach, Florida.
“We are very excited to introduce our unique entertainment experience to the Wesley Chapel-Tampa 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, beverage, ice cream, and a host of other amenities. There is no doubt that the growing and vibrant mix of families, seniors, and young professionals in Wesley Chapel will make it an ideal location for PopStroke as we expand throughout Florida and beyond.”
“The shape of this property allowed us to get very creative and build one of our most unique set of courses,” said Tiger Woods. “I am thrilled to have PopStroke join the Tampa community with recreational and professional golfers and people of all ages and interests. PopStroke offers a fun way 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 Tampa property and its uniquely designed course is a momentous step in the growth of the business – as there are now five venues throughout Florida, bringing this one-of-a-kind experience to golfers of all ages and abilities. 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 Wood’s 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 February 16, hosted by PopStroke, government officials, and the Florida Sportscoast Tourism office. Doors will open to the public on Friday. February 17 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.
