Drive Shack Raleigh

I received a complimentary lunch and golf play time for review purposes. All opinions are my own. See Disclosure/Disclaimer for details.

Raleigh has once again drove it home with a fun, family and friends event venue. Drive Shack Raleigh has been quietly building a 3-story indoor/outdoor driving range, restaurant, bar, rooftop terrace, and event space facility and hiring the best customer service professionals around. Tucked away between the PNC Arena and Trinity Road, it’s easy to see why this mega-center has been kept secret. After hearing about the hype from several other local influencers, I knew I had to check out Drive Shack for myself.

I contacted the director of sales, Christine Hammons, and asked for a tour of the facility. Christine graciously offered me a tour, but she also bought me lunch and a round of golf. I was impressed by Christine’s hospitality as well as every staff member that I came into contact with. Christine said the company prides itself on taking care of their employees,to ensure their customers receive the same treatment. “It’s what sets us apart from our competitors, and the golf balls don’t have chips inside them,” said Christine.

    Hey, Rachel. How can you manage everything? It’s really tough for you to manage full family duty with full-time Realtor works.
    Your golf placed is really wonderful to make fun. I am impressed…

  8. This is the same thing as Top Golf… Very fun!

    1. Rachel says:

      Yes, very similar, but Drive Shack doesn’t have chips in their balls. You play with real golf balls, and their technology senses its location.
