New family-friendly driving range planned for Vero Beach

VERO BEACH — Think of a bowling alley, only for golfers.

That’s what Dr. William Mallon is planning for an 8-acre former driving range at 3456 U.S. 1, adjacent to the Center for Advanced Eye Care, where Mallon is an opthalmologist.

At Big Shots Vero Beach, driving-range bays would be rented by the hour. The bays would include comfortable seating areas for groups to gather while they practice golf swings or play games together, Mallon said.

The concept is based on a new type of golf entertainment business gaining popularity throughout the United States. Franchises such as Big Shots and Top Golf offer family-friendly facilities with dining areas, bars and arcade games along with driving ranges and golf activities.
