LaunchPad Golf has opened at Heritage Pointe and here’s what to expect
Two amazing things happened last year. #1, LaunchPad Golf has opened at Mickelson National Golf Course and #2 LaunchPad Golf has announced the opening of a second, even larger location in Calgary. Lo and behold, the second location, LaunchPad Gold Heritage Pointe, is finally here, and that’s all you need for an elevated golf experience.
The multi-level golf and entertainment venue opened to the public on June 30. And, it’s just as amazing as you’d like it to be. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from the new LaunchPad—
We already knew this place was going to be bigger. What we didn’t know was that it would be THAT big. There are 40 booths (or punching bays, if you will) spread over two different levels. Each suite has sofas for the team to relax on, tables to set down your drinks and of course, everything you need for a good game of golf.
Plus, the place is home to a 200-seat restaurant and bar that serves great food and bevies (more on that later). So it’s practically the perfect place for just about any gathering, whether it’s a night out with friends, a family bonding session, or a fun office outing (the bosses take cues).
One of the great things about golfing at LaunchPad is that you don’t have to worry about the season or the weather. The other is the overall golf experience. If you haven’t toured the setup yet, LauchPad is not a fully virtual setup. Of course, the courses are simulated but you swing a real ball. And you could very well bring your own clubs. However, each stand comes with a free set.
Just like its counterpart, the Heritage Pointe location gives you access to the world’s best courses and even mini-games. Whatever your skill level, they have a game for you. And if we’re not mistaken, you can even get some tips or a lesson or two to improve your game.
FOOD AND DRINKS
Ah! The only two things that can really make or break an epic experience are food and drink. And LaunchPad has you covered on both fronts. Their menu was designed in consultation with celebrity Calgary chef, Mike Pigot. So you can expect the best of classic comfort foods. There are shareables and handhelds like nachos, wings, hot dogs and more that you can enjoy while playing. And then there are sandwiches, pizzas, bowls, salads and more to enjoy after the game.
Yes, of course, they have a selection of craft beers and classic and innovative cocktails to go with the game and the food. Basically, the LaunchPad resto-bar is the one we visit even when we’re not playing golf.
These are the new LaunchPad Golf. And if you’re ready for the golf experience of a lifetime, we suggest you pack your clubs, put on your golf hats, and head to 31 Heritage Pointe Dr.
