Located a few miles from Suntrust Park, the new Atlanta Braves stadium, the proposed $27 million driving range facility would be built on the Legacy Golf Course. The 61,300-sq. ft., three-story venue would hold up to 1,000 guests, and Mosaic Clubs and Resorts predicts the site will open by late 2017.
AllStar Golf, a proposed $27 million driving range facility, would be built on the Legacy Golf Course, just miles from the new Atlanta Braves stadium, Suntrust Park, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
The golf and entertainment center would be managed by the Atlanta-based Mosaic Clubs and Resorts, which also manages 17 other facilities in the Southeast. Steve Willy and Whitney Crouse, Mosaic co-founders, presented their proposal during a Board of Commissioners work session on June 28, the Journal-Constitution reported.
“You have to be careful here not to think this is a typical driving range,” Crouse told the commissioners.
Commission Chairman Tim Lee called it an “extraordinarily exciting” project. Many other commissioners also spoke in favor of the idea.
The clubhouse would be torn down and rebuilt into a “state of the art facility,” according to the presentation. The 61,300-sq. ft., three-story venue would hold up to 1,000 guests, hire up to 400 employees and have a $200 million impact in the area over the next 10 years, the Journal-Constitution reported.
Crouse said AllStar’s proximity to Suntrust Park would bring more customers, but added that the facility would not be dependent on Braves game days for business, the Journal-Constitution reported.
Mosaic said they are working with the U.S. Department of the Interior for permits to use the land, which is adjacent to Dobbins Air Reserve Base and currently leased by Cobb County. In a statement to the Journal-Constitution, Mosaic said the site is planned to open by late 2017.
