Tour the new 5 Under Golf Center opening in Beaumont

Immersive, interactive gaming center swings into Southeast Texas

It's a hole in one for Southeast Texas!

A unique and immersive gaming center is opening this week off College St. near I-10 in Beaumont. 

5 Under Golf Center features a variety of interactive games.

"We’re structured around 5 core amenities which include games, learning, equipment, entertainment and partnerships," 5 Under Golf Center says on their website. 

12News got a sneak peak at the swing suite indoor part of the center on Thursday. 

It features a massive screen with a selection of virtual games, allowing you to hit a golf ball, throw a baseball, kick a soccer ball and even attack zombies through a virtual screen. 

The game suites is surrounded by a lounge area with a full-service bar and restaurant.

"It's going to have some of your typical sports bar type food, but it's also going to have some more on a higher end,"  Austin Williams, president of 5 Under Golf Center said. "We have steaks, we have salmon."

"The TopGolf Swing Suite delivers a one-of-a-kind simulation that's fun for golfers and non-golfers alike," 5 Under Golf Center promotes on their website. 

The indoor gaming suites opens November 22. 5 Under Golf Center will open their outdoor double-deck driving range in Spring 2020. 

It will be the first in the country to use both of Topgolf's technologies at one facility. It is only the second of its kind built in Texas. 

"We felt like there was a void from an entertainment perspective," Williams said. "There needs to be something like this."

The outdoor addition will let you track your shots, get feedback on your golf game and play virtual courses. 

5 Under Golf Center is located at 5945 College Street. It is open until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturday.
