What is Back 9 Social?
Back 9 Social has brought together the pinnacle of golf simulation with the best of hospitality. Gastropub eats, craft cocktails, and the premier launch monitors and simulators. There is no better place to have your next social event. Let our expertise create a fun, memorable experience for you and for your friends and family.
What makes Back 9 Social so high tech?
At Back 9 Social we use Trackman 4 launch monitors and simulation. TrackMan 4 is unlike any other golf launch monitor. It uniquely combines incredible radar capability with high-end optics for data you can trust. It’s a patented complete solution. The TrackMan 4 tracks and displays the full trajectory of any shot, from short putts to 400-yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with superior accuracy. It also maps the shot’s 3D trajectory in real-time, together with all impact and launch information. Trackman is constantly improving their tech and adding new courses to make a better and better experience.
Are you open on holidays?
We sure are. We do close for a few of them though: Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July. But we try not to let the holidays get in the way of golf.
How much does it cost to play?
Prices depend on the day and the bay, so please refer to our reservation page for the most up to date information and specific details on the price of game play. Keep in mind, our pricing is by the bay per hour, not per person. That makes all the difference.
How many people can play at once?
Up to 8 players can be in a bay and play. For safety reasons, only one person can be hitting at any one time. We welcome and encourage larger groups and private parties and allow for double (or more!) bay bookings.
How long does it take to play a full 18 hole round of golf?
It typically takes about one hour per person to play a round of 18 holes. So if you’re flying solo you should be able to get through a round in an hour. For a group of four, four hours should get it done. Eating, drinking, and socializing can definitely slow things down depending on how you party.
Are there any age restrictions?
Anyone under 16 must be supervised by a Guest 21+ at all times. Anyone under 18 must be supervised by a Guest 21+ after 9:00pm.
What are the rules?

- Aim for the center of the screen at all times – how else are you going to hot the ball straight? Hitting golf balls anywhere other than at the screen is prohibited, and all players are responsible for damages or injuries caused by any balls hit outside of the bay
- Throwing golf balls is prohibited.
- Any Guest under 16, or under 18 after 9pm, must always be supervised by a Guest over 21.

Booking & Events
Do you take reservations?
We do! You can reserve a bay or book multiple bays ahead of time for any point in the future. Options available vary based on the day, time, and bay, so click on our reservations tab to start planning, check availability and view pricing.
Feel like a spur of the moment visit? Walk-in Guests are always welcome, so come on in! If we don’t have a bay immediately available we have a spacious bar as well as tables and lounge areas for you to wait or eat and drink.
Are reservations required?
Not at all! We always welcome walk-in Guests though we do highly recommend that you make a reservation to reserve a spot.
Can I reserve a bay over the phone?
Our online booking tool lets you check availability and reserve any open time slot in just a few clicks. It’s extremely easy to use and will allow you to get all the right information to get you ready for your visit.
How far in advance can I make a reservation?
We take reservations for any size group up to 21 days in advance. For groups larger than 8 we do recommend getting a VIP bay or booking two bays; and if you’re getting closer to 20 people give us a ring so we can make sure we have the right setup for you or help you book a private event.
Can I use a Gift Card to pay for my reservation or event?
You can! Gift Cards may be redeemed online at checkout when reserving 1 bay. Please note that Gift cards cannot be applied toward deposits for events of 2+ bays, but can be used toward your remaining balance day-of.
Can I bring a cake?
Of course! We do ask that any outside cakes are brought in a sealed container and only opened at your bay (we want to be wary of our other guests’ potential allergies). If you need the cake refrigerated or held frozen we do again ask that the cake be in a container.
Can I bring balloons?
We ask you to not bring any balloons. Our ceilings go up to 32’ and a stray balloon may find itself stuck up there for the long term.
What do you do for birthdays?
We will do whatever you need to help make the day a special one. If you plan to have a larger group give us a call and we will happily help you get a private event planned.
Food & Drink
Do you have any vegetarian options?
Yes, we have many! We have salad, pizzas, tacos, and shareable plates that are all vegetarian. Check our menu for a little “v” to see what’s vegetarian. One of our caddies can answer any questions on the menu for you as well when you come in.
Do you have any gluten-free options?
We do have some gluten free options. Our tacos and pizzas can also be made gluten free by asking our kitchen to substitute a gluten free pizza dough or taco shell for your meal.
Can I bring in my own food?
Unfortunately we cannot allow you to bring in your own food; however, we welcome you to bring a cake if you are celebrating a birthday or another special occasion.
Do I bring my own clubs?
Yes! We encourage it! All we ask is that you clean your club faces before using them in our facility.
What if I don’t own golf clubs?
No worries. We got you. We have club sets for men, women, kids, rights, and leftys.
What does it cost to rent golf clubs?
Nothing! Our club sets are always free to use.
Do you serve food and alcohol?
We sure do. “Social” is the operative word in “Back 9 Social” – the social experience is not only a great part of golf but it’s also a key part of Back 9 Social. Our large halo bar in the center of our concept has beer, wine, spirits, and craft cocktails. Combine these great drinks with our gastropub eats and you’re guaranteed a great time while you swing and sip.
Alcohol will only be served to those 21 and over and all patrons planning to drink and play must have a valid ID.
Do you have parking?
Yes, we have parking directly in front of our entrance. We also have a convenient bag drop area at the front of the building so you can skip walking your clubs through the snow and rain.
Do you close due to weather?
We like to golf rain, sleet or snow and we welcome you to join us. Save for extreme cases we will always open. However we do ask that you not drive in unsafe conditions.
What sort of games can I play?
Our Trackman system allows you to not only full rounds of golf on some of the best courses in the world, but you can also practice at the range or play a number of games like Long Drive, Bullseye, Closest to the Pin, and Capture the Flag. Trackman also hosts global tournaments (and we host in-house ones!) as well.
Do you offer lessons?
We are always down to help you improve your game. We offer lessons with our trained staff, as well as clinics, and lessons with golf pros. You are also more than welcome to book a bay and bring a coach if you have someone you already work with.
Is membership required?
Memberships are not required and Back 9 Social currently does not offer memberships. Unless otherwise booked, all bays are open to all people at all times.
What is the B9S dress code?
Unlike a country club, Back 9 Social does not have a dress code. Casual attire is welcome (though you are always welcome to dress up!) though if you plan to take some swings we do recommend comfortable clothing and shoes.
Are you kid friendly?
Yes, we are kid friendly! We encourage the great game of golf for everyone. Anyone under 18 years old must be supervised by an adult at all times and only those over 18 are allowed to make bay rentals.
