NORTON, Massachusetts – Mass Golf and Five Iron Golf today announced a new partnership as the brand gets ready to open their first location in the Bay State this fall.

Members will receive a complimentary one-month trial membership offer and other exclusive discounts on services and experiences. With this partnership, Five Iron Golf also becomes a proud Supporter of the Mass Golf Youth Fund, which supports Mass Golf’s First Tee and Youth on Course programs.
“We are thrilled to welcome one of golf’s most talked about brands, Five Iron Golf, to Massachusetts,” said Jesse Menachem, Mass Golf’s Executive Director/CEO. “This new partnership aligns with many of our strategic priorities and is a natural fit given our mission, vision, and culture as an organization.”
The Five Iron Boston location is set to open this fall in the Downtown Crossing neighborhood. Featuring 15 TrackMan simulators, the new location is over 14,000 square feet and will have two bars, PuttView technology, and custom club-fitting with The Fitting Lab. Having re-shaped urban golf culture, Five Iron delivers a re-imagined, high-tech, inclusive urban golf experience for golfers and non-golfers alike. With state-of-the-art facilities and industry-leading technology, each simulator bay will enable guests to play a round like the pros with actionable data, instant video analysis, and virtual access to the world’s greatest courses. Golf is not the only element that Five Iron Golf tees up. The Boston location also will boast a carefully curated food menu, two full-service bars, numerous widescreen TVs, shuffleboard, and the classic arcade game, Golden Tee.
“With our anticipation and excitement to open Five Iron Golf Boston, there is no better fit than for us to partner with an established golf association as strong as Mass Golf,” said Mike Doyle, Five Iron’s Director of Golf and Co-Founder. “We look forward to the energy and enthusiasm of the metro Boston community of golfers in our simulators practicing, taking lessons, at our bar, hosting events and taking the 5i brand out to the course.”
The new partnership will offer exclusive discounts and access to Mass Golf members throughout the year, including discounts on golf lessons and in their popular indoor golf leagues, where participants compete in seven-week seasons featuring various play formats and courses with weekly and grand prizes like a stay-and-play golf trip to renowned courses like Casa de Campo. The facility will also be recognized as an official Mass Golf Members Now Club, providing individuals with the opportunity to join Mass Golf and house their Handicap Index© through Five Iron Boston.
“It won’t be long before the team at Five Iron Golf experience just how passionate the Massachusetts golf community is about the game,” said Catherine Carmignani, Mass Golf Director of Communications & Marketing. “At Mass Golf, we celebrate golf as part of a lifestyle and the 5i brand is very much complimentary to that approach.
