In the real estate trend of developing every inch of the neighborhood, when we heard a golf course could be coming to the neighborhood, we were like, “where?”

Well, according to Universal Hub, the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a proposal for a “golf course” featuring 18 holes of simulated golf complete with a real life “19th Hole” lounge.

The brainchild behind this ingenious idea is Southie’s own Danny Picard.  His plan is to transform the  vacant 5,000-square-foot basement in the CVS building on West Broadway into six large separate rooms to where golfers can swing real clubs and balls at a computerized screen that will track their rounds. Each round is estimated to cost about $65.

In other Southie golf news, luxury indoor mini golf is coming to the Seaport. 

Also great news for the newly launched South Boston Golf Club. 

Get those clubs ready!

    Old, and reused idea. Not for nothing but back in the 70s, there was the same cncept,, but you could select a different course, say, Congresssional, Oakmont, Pebble Beach ect, at the old Garden.

    The virtual reality machines are extremely expensive. I did a survey for the North Conway C.C. A good system was 45k. Good luck with that!
