Grand Opening Festivities and Charity Partner Announced
Kansas City, MO. – T-Shotz, Kansas City’s locally owned, next-generation golf and entertainment venue is set to open as guests can begin teeing off on Tuesday, October 13th. Located at Kansas City’s Metro North Crossing Redevelopment, T-Shotz features 66 spacious, climate-controlled hitting bays and suites across three levels where guests can eat, drink, and socialize while playing a variety of golf games and virtual courses on the expansive 220 yard targeted driving range. Guests can now begin reserving hitting bays for October 13 and beyond at www.tshotz.com.
On October 13, T-Shotz will host a private, invitation-only VIP event from 6 to 8 p.m. Local dignitaries and celebrities will be in attendance and Kansas City, MO native and season 12 of The Voice contestant, Casi Joy will perform. T-Shotz will also announce a partnership with TeamSmile, a nonprofit organization founded in Kansas City, MO that provides free dental care and oral health education in a unique and special model by using the power of sports. TeamSmile conducts huge dental clinics in stadiums and arenas throughout the country, and uses the combination of players, cheerleaders, mascots, face painters and a DJ to provide a special, life-changing experience to children in need. TeamSmile and its partners are also dedicated to providing a Dental Home for families without oral health care options. The partnerships solidify the message that oral health care is linked to long-term health. To date, TeamSmile has conducted over 225 programs, served more than 50,000 children and provided over $17 million in free dental care and oral health education.
“TeamSmile is thrilled to be chosen as the Charity Partner of T-Shotz, said John McCarthy, Executive Director of TeamSmile. It’s an honor to partner with this spectacular Troon property that will unite so many people from the Kansas City metro area. I’ve had the pleasure to tour the facility multiple times through the construction phase, and it’s truly impressive. Importantly, the character of the organization shines through with their foresight to choose a Charity Partner before they even opened their doors. Clearly, T-Shotz values the community and has a heart to give back and make a positive impact on this community. We are excited to partner with T-Shotz, and we look forward to a long relationship.”
T-Shotz General Manager, JW Fisher echoed the enthusiasm of the partnership. “One of the biggest differentiators between us and similar venues or concepts is we are local to the core. We have local ownership, offer a chef-inspired menu with locally-sourced ingredients, serve handcrafted cocktails and beers from local distilleries and craft breweries and our partnership with a great Kansas City charity like TeamSmile furthers that. We are excited to help raise money for such a tremendous organization.”
Grand opening events will continue on October 14th and 15th and guests will have an opportunity to win fun giveaways and prizes. T-Shotz will be open all day to the public (9 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and guests in attendance will have an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets with 100 percent of the proceeds going to TeamSmile. 20 raffle ticket purchasers will be randomly selected each day to take part in a $50,000 hole-in-one competition at 7:15 p.m.
