Metro North Announces Major Golf-Entertainment Project
The new Metro North Crossing development recently announced that it will include a significant entertainment project when it replaces the former Metro North Center.
The long-awaited project will include a golf and entertainment complex when it opens next summer. Similar to TopGolf in Overland Park and the recently announced Driv Golf Lounge + Brewhouse in North Kansas City, the facility will be operated by Troon, a global leader in golf course management and development based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Though as yet unnamed, the center will feature a 52,000-square-foot complex and will include 64 climate-controlled, technology-enhanced hitting bays and suites on three levels.
The golf center will be designed for all ages and skill levels. Guests will be able to “play” several famous golf courses as their shots are projected on high-definition television screens. Players can use advanced tracking technology and receive real-time data on every swing.
The restaurant portion of the center will include an 8,000-square-foot sports bar with interactive televisions. Also planned is a member’s grill and rooftop view lounge.
Metro North Crossing is a $187.5 million mixed-use project being developed on the site of the former Metro North Mall.
