O’Reilly Hospitality Management, LLC Celebrates BigShots Golf Entertainment Center Groundbreaking in Springfield, MO

January 14, 2020

O’Reilly Hospitality Management, LLC, a leading hospitality management group, officially celebrates the groundbreaking of BigShots Golf in Springfield, MO.

BigShots Golf, expected to employ over 120 full and part-time people, is to be developed in north Springfield on 12 acres at the intersection of Kearney Street and Glenstone Avenue where the former Kmart operated.

When completed, BigShots Golf, will have 56 driving range bays on two stories with 3500 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor putting green, a golf academy that can be used for year-round training, a full restaurant and bar that will offer American fare, healthy food options and special menu items.

“We are so very excited to bring BigShots Golf to the Springfield community, as I think it fills a little bit of a void that we have in entertainment and activity options, especially on the north side”, states Tim O’Reilly. “I believe this unique, high tech, fun and distinctive destination experience will be a favorite in Springfield and all of Southwest Missouri within 9 short months! Additionally, our partnership with BigShots and  ClubCorp has been a very positive experience that we look to replicate all over the Midwest, so this will be our showcase BigShots Golf facility!”

This cutting-edge golf and entertainment establishment is created for all ages and skill levels. Avid golfers can play full rounds on virtual golf courses that will improve their game. Non-golfing players, families and children will enjoy games such as Knockout and Pinball, as well other fun, interactive games.

Reflecting a broader consumer, BigShots Golf meets the demand for more recreational and entertainment experiences in Springfield. Construction for BigShots Golf is projected to be a 9-month project timeline.

“I am so excited about this latest groundbreaking of BigShots Golf, our second this month with O’Reilly Hospitality Management”, says David Pillsbury, CEO of ClubCorp. “This is a milestone for BigShots Golf and for O’Reilly Hospitality Management after months of collaborative planning. O’Reilly Hospitality has been a great partner to have as we set out on this journey to introduce the BigShots Golf state-of-the-art technology. There is a reason that the golf entertainment industry is soaring. People are discovering the magic of golf in a fun, non-intimidating environment. BigShots Golf offers exactly that but for every member of the family. The games are visually compelling and designed for players of every age and skill level to play together. We are thrilled as the momentum continues to grow as we introduce this great concept and at the same time expose the game of golf to so many. Thank you to O’Reilly Hospitality Management for partnering with BigShots Golf and helping us propel the
brand forward.”
