The game of golf received a boost during the pandemic, as more people took up the game, especially at places like Heritage Isles and Hunter’s Green Country Clubs.

So, it makes perfect sense that a golf store & hi-tech training facility would open nearby.

According to City of Tampa permitting records, GOLFTEC will be moving into part of the space formerly occupied by Pier 1 Imports in Highwoods Preserve off Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd.

GOLFTEC, founded in 1995, will be taking over a portion of former home goods store, on the end closest to Westshore Pizza.

GOLFTEC offers golf lessons, golf instruction and custom club fittings in what it calls a state-of-the-art Training Center. It uses certified coaches and technology to help improve your golf game. For $125, locations offer 60-minute swing evaluations, where motion measurement sensors are attached to the student’s shoulders, arms and hips. The results are evaluated by coaches using hi-def video and other tech and if desired, a lesson plan is formed.

GOLFTEC has 15 locations in the U.S., as well as locations in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. Nearby, there are locations in Carrollwood and on Boy Scout Rd. in the Westshore business district.

NEW RESIDENCES: Cross Creek Blvd. is getting some of its first building projects in years, as dirt is being moved in two different spots for new townhomes.

We reported in February of last year that both projects had been approved after some debate. Combined, the two townhome projects, towards the eastern end of Cross Creek Blvd., will bring 95 total new residences to the area.

One parcel is located at 10801 Cross Creek Blvd, east of the New Tampa Dance Theatre, and directly across the street from the entrance to the Heritage Isles community. It will have nine buildings and 60 attached single-family residences. 

Further east, a second parcel will consist of six buildings and 35 single-family residences.
