Tiger Woods-designed golf course opening in Florida
At the height of his powers, Woods’ putting was almost perfect; between 2002-2005, he missed just three of his 1,540 putts from three feet and in on the PGA Tour, according to Golf Channel.
“We are excited to introduce PopStroke to the Sarasota community as we continue our expansion,” Woods said in a press release. “PopStroke is about bringing friends and families together to create lasting memories around the game of golf.”
The PopStroke putting courses were constructed entirely with synthetic turf, mirroring the undulations, fairways, bunkers and rough that feature on traditional golf courses.
One — the Tiger Red Course — will challenge “even the most experienced putters with strong contouring and tricky hole locations,” while the other — the Tiger Black Course — “has softened contours to create an ideal course for families and anyone new to golf.”
“We have created two 18-hole putting courses that can be enjoyed by all, regardless of age or skill level,” Woods said. “We look forward to welcoming a new generation of players to our unique putting experiences at PopStroke Sarasota.”
Alongside the golf course, there will be an outdoor dining area complete with a full menu, craft beer, wine, signature cocktails and ice cream.
The course at Sarasota will be the first of seven planned PopStroke facilities set to open in the next 18 months as the company seeks to expand across the USA.
