Drive Shack Randall’s Island Golf Center
Drive Shack Inc.
The Drive Shack Randall’s Island Golf Center is located on Randall's Island Park. The center is a year-round, technology-enhanced, family-friendly recreational facility for golf practice and learning and will become is an important destination for the city and a critical piece of the redevelopment effort for Randall’s Island.
The project places a 75,000 SF golf center building on a 16-acre so that a large area of parkland is restored and returned to public enjoyment. The building has ninety-six hitting bays on three levels and two indoor 9-hole miniature golf courses supported by amenities including food service within a festive atmosphere. Environmental features include solar panels and a stormwater management system that does not increase any runoff to the existing system.
The project is a public-private partnership with NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and the Randall’s Island Park Alliance. The project received approval from the NYC Public Design Commission.
