GolfCave adds 3 new franchise locations: 24/7 indoor golf concept takes off in New Jersey

GolfCaves feature private rooms (aka Caves) with immersive hitting areas, premium amenities, and TrackMan technology.

Clark-based GolfCave, one of the first indoor golf businesses, recently announced that three additional locations are under development in the Garden State, bringing the indoor golf business to a total of seven locations.

The new GolfCaves, in Union, Burlington and Essex counties, will each be owned and operated by separate local franchise owners from New Jersey.

“Demand for our concept is exploding as more and more golfers discover how technology has transformed indoor practice and play,” Dave Wechsler, GolfCave founder, said. “Our new franchisees are eager to bring our unique private ‘Cave’ simulation experience to more communities in New Jersey.”

Wechsler was one of the first to introduce the golf simulator concept as private rooms (aka ‘Caves’) that include an immersive hitting area, premium amenities and TrackMan technology used by PGA Tour players so seasoned golfers could hone their skills and novice players could learn the game.

GolfCave is open to the public and offers memberships that provide preferred tee times and 24/7 access via the company’s proprietary CaveKey system.

“Our members and franchisees appreciate the ease of our business model,” Wechsler explained.

The technology systems, recurring revenue membership model and corporate support create a uniquely turn-key franchise offering. Wechsler added that even GolfCave’s bring-your-own food and beverage arrangement is a win-win for franchisees and golfers.

The three new franchise locations follow the opening of GolfCave’s first franchise location in Randolph early this year. The new locations are expected to open this year with specific location address announcements coming soon.

GolfCave LLC also owns and operates locations in Clark, Green Brook and Eatontown.
