U-Know Pizza hits hole in one with virtual golf
February 1 – Those looking for pizza, a cold drink, 18 holes of golf and an escape room can now find it all in one place.
This place is U-Know Pizza and Sandwich Shop. The restaurant-turned-entertainment center has added virtual golf to its ever-expanding repertoire.
The golf room is a side area with a wall-sized screen that shows the golf course. There are seven courses to choose from and four people can play at a time. Playing options include nine or 18 holes, or players can use the experience as a practice ground.
A mat is centered in the room, and players can play on it using foam golf balls. They then hit the balls towards the screen.
“There are sensors in the mat that pick up the speed of your club, the angle of the club,” said co-owner Clarence Bir. Based on the movement of the player, the sensor determines the accuracy and distance at which the ball was hit.
“We had some good golfers come out and play, and they had a lot of fun,” he said.
Bir said he wanted to give Logansport more entertainment options.
“People are always looking for something to do,” he said. “Golfers are passionate about what they do. Really, it’s just something Logansport and Cass County can do during these winter months. We all have the winter doldrums. Come in. Get out of the cold. Grab a pizza Have fun. “
Bir said it takes about an hour to complete 18 holes. The room will not be reserved for the suite, so players will have a little more time to complete their course if necessary. The cost of virtual golf is $20 per person.
In December, the restaurant added an escape room where participants work to solve a mob murder and locate a missing FBI agent.
The new additions make good party options. Bir said a birthday party for 10 people had been booked for the escape room. The guests take turns solving the mystery and enjoying a meal.
Those interested in booking a virtual golf session or experiencing the escape room can book a time by calling 574-722-5300 or messaging U-Know Pizza via Facebook. All sessions must be booked in advance. U-Know Pizza and Sandwich Shop is located at 516 E. Broadway.
