After coming dangerously close to shutting down, Golfland USA has found new life. New owner Justin McKee, of Henderson, told Owensboro Living that he is set to reopen Golfland on June 1st. The inflatables will not return, but the batting cages, driving range, mini golf, go-karts, hobby shop, and both RC tracks will remain open.
Justin has been busy painting and repairing the miniature golf statues, cleaning the batting cages, and doing other general maintenance. “I want to give the impression that I care about this place and I’m working hard to get it back to where it should be,” McKee said.
Next on his list is repairing the fence at the end of the driving ranges. Since it’s too late in the season to sow Bermuda Grass, the rest of the driving range will be taken care of next year. Instead, Justin is focusing efforts on the batting cages. “I’ve already serviced them the best I could, but I’ve got a technician who specializes in this style of batting cages coming to work on them in mid-June.”
Inside the hobby shop, Justin plans to add some arcade games and a new concession stand with more food options.
Barring any major, unforeseen delays, the “Grand Reopening” is scheduled for Saturday, June 6th with free hotdogs and discounted prices to welcome people back out to see all the improvements.
In the meantime, Justin is committed to doing his best to “continue the tradition of providing a great family entertainment facility to Owensboro and the surrounding areas.”
Golfland USA is located at 1864 Old Calhoun Road. Find more updates on Facebook.
