It's tee time at Popstroke’s new location, opening today in Sarasota.

The golf and dining concept, founded by golfing legend Tiger Woods with partner Greg Bartoli, features two decked-out 18-hole mini-golf courses, outdoor dining, table and lawn games as well as three bars—one of them on the rooftop of the building.

Popstroke serves a variety of dishes, including tuna tartare, a black bean veggie burger and reuben egg rolls as well as draft beer, wine and hand-crafted cocktails.

Located at 195 University Town Center Dr., Popstroke Sarasota is the third Florida location, in addition to one in Fort Myers and Port St. Lucie. This is also the company’s biggest location with a 400-person capacity.

According to Popstroke’s website, the area resembles a traditional golf course with a “sleek and stylish” twist using synthetic turf, fairways, bunkers and rough.

Despite its recent opening, the company is looking to further expand locally and nationally. Future Florida locations include Orlando, Tampa and Delray with more Popstrokes in Houston Scottsdale and Glendale—all opening before 2023.

The Tampa location, more specifically in Wesley Chapel, will be located on SR-56 in between I-75 and Wesley Chapel Boulevard. It will include a 36-hole facility with similar amenities as the Sarasota location.

Popstroke operates on a first come, first serve basis daily from 9 a.m.-midnight.

Prices for an all-day play are $25 for an adult, with discounts available for seniors, military and groups of 10 or more. Kids aged 3-12 can also play for $15-$18.

Even though Woods is claimed to be very involved in the process creating of the courses, he was nowhere to be seen in the opening of the Sarasota location—probably because he's in Oklahoma scouting Southern Hills Country Club where the PGA Championship is going down next month.
