5 Under Golf Center

5 Under Golf Center has been in the same location for many years. Countless southeast Texas golfers have enjoyed their golf equipment, driving range, and stellar customer service. In 2018, the owners made a bold decision to expand the facility by 11,305 square feet, to attract a wider range of customers.

That decision lead to today’s completely renovated and expanded facility, which includes an enlarged retail area and club repair, along with a restaurant, bar, and state-of-the-art kitchen.
5 Under Golf Center offers Four Toptracer Indoor Swing Suites that feature large screens that can simulate golf courses, baseball pitching, hockey,and other games. Guests can compete against each other in virtual games from the comfort of the lounge, with service from the bar and full-service restaurant.
Outside, a new two-level tee box overlooks the new driving range. The same Toptracer technology you will see while watching a PGA Tour event on TV is available to the golfers. The Toptracer Range for the outdoor driving range can help players track their shots, get feedback and play virtual courses against their friends.
This renovation made 5 Under Golf Center much more than just a golf course; with indoor simulator games for high-tech gaming, a DJ Night for entertainment, and a full-service bar and restaurant, it has something for everyone in the family.
Each simulation bay features a massive screen with a selection of virtual games, allowing you to hit a golf ball, throw a baseball, kick a soccer ball, and even attack zombies through a virtual screen! The game suites are surrounded by the lounge area with a full-service bar and restaurant. The indoor Topgolf Swing Suite simulators have a variety of different games, including over 140 golf courses you can choose from.
The outdoor driving range is two stories with 20 bays, powered by Toptracer Range technology. Serving the outdoor range area is patio dining, a music stage, restrooms, and an additional bar.
The renovation also provided new parking, landscaping, and updated exterior signage.
During renovation, the existing building was completely gutted and revamped. The existing driving range continued to remain open, and a mobile retail unit helped serve customer needs during construction.
With the renovation, 5 Under Golf Center has brought the game of golf to all levels of players, and made it a family affair. This has enabled them to maintain their existing customer base as well as attract new customers who have never played golf before. The renovation has helped feed this growth with a state-of-the-art kitchen that offers a wide variety of menus for the whole family, and a bar that can keep the drinks coming.
