Inauguration of a golf course designed by Tiger Woods in Florida

PopStroke Entertainment Group is a “casual golf and dining concept” co-owned by Woods and Greg Bartoli – an entrepreneur and former investment banker. The group already has two facilities in Fort Meyers, Florida and Port St. Lucie, Florida, with courses designed by TGR Design, under the direction of Woods.
Woods, who resumed competition at the Masters two weeks ago after suffering serious leg injuries in a car accident in February 2021, has been designing golf courses since 2006, but PopStroke is marking its first foray into putting courses.

At the height of his powers, Woods’ putting was near perfect; between 2002 and 2005, he missed just three of his 1,540 three-foot putts and on the PGA Tour, according to Golf Channel.

“We are excited to introduce PopStroke to the Sarasota community as we continue to expand,” Woods said in a press release. “PopStroke is about bringing friends and families together to create lasting memories around the game of golf.”

PopStroke putting courses have been constructed entirely with synthetic turf, reflecting the undulations, fairways, bunkers and roughs that characterize traditional golf courses.

One, the Tiger Red Course, will challenge “even the most experienced putters with solid contours and tricky hole locations,” while the other, the Tiger Black Course, “has softened contours to create a great course for families and anyone new to golf.”

“We’ve created two 18-hole putting courses that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age or skill level,” Woods said. “We look forward to welcoming a new generation of players to our unique putting experiences at PopStroke Sarasota.”

Next to the golf course, there will be an outdoor dining area with a full menu, craft beer, wine, signature cocktails and ice cream.

The course in Sarasota will be the first of seven planned PopStroke facilities that will open over the next 18 months as the company seeks to expand across the United States.
