Drive Shack, an owner of golf-related leisure and entertainment businesses, generated $73.9 million in revenue during Q2 2021, a jump from $32.1 million in the same period last year. 

The strong quarter was fueled by American Golf, the company’s traditional golf business, which posted $62.3 million in revenue during the quarter, up from $30.3 million in Q2 2020. 

Puttery, the company’s indoor golf experience, received a major investment from four-time golf major champion Rory McIlroy and his investment group, Symphony Ventures.

Symphony has committed at least $10 million for 10% ownership of each Puttery venue that opens through 2023. 

Drive Shack’s impressive earnings report is the result of a growing and diverse golf market.

  • Centroid Investment Partners, a South-Korea based private equity firm, acquired TaylorMade Golf for $1.7 billion in May.
  • The same month, Puttshack, a mini golf venture, completed a growth capital round of $60 million, led by Promethean Investments.
  • Bruin Capital acquired a controlling stake in swing simulator company Full Swing for $160 million in July. 
  • Swingers, a high-end mini golf experience from the U.K., is opening in Washington, D.C. and New York after raising $20 million from Cain International.

Puttery is slated to open later this year with locations in Dallas, Charlotte, and Houston.
