If you love golf but don't want to spend the day on the course — or hours in the car driving to one of Topgolf's nearest locations — then you're in luck.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Drive Shack CEO Sarah Watterson made the news official during a 1 p.m. press conference.
So what is Drive Shack?
The company just opened its first "golf-themed entertainment complex" in Orlando, Florida, in March.
Drive Shack says it's "where players of every slice or fade can kick back, kick it up, or kick aside everything they know about the game. It’s where you can play the game your way, with friends, the kids, or just with a couple of beers. It’s the place where fun is bound to happen, no matter your drive."
The New Orleans project will have three levels with 90 indoor driving range bays, a restaurant and more, according to NOLA.com.
Drive Shack reports upcoming locations in West Palm Beach, Florida; Raleigh, North Carolina; Marietta, Georgia; and Richmond, Virginia.
According to Forbes.com, Topgolf has opened 30 locations since debuting the concept in 2005 and broke ground on its Baton Rouge, Louisiana, location in February with the hopes of opening it either late this year or in early 2019.
The former Times-Picayune building, which is 62,000-square feet and opened in 1968, has been mostly vacant since 2016.
According to NOLA.com, local developer Joe Jaeger purchased the property for $3.5 million later that year.
