"1UP Golf started on a wine tour bus.
That’s where I was when I gazed out the window as the bus passed an old abandoned drive-in theater along the highway. I said to myself, wouldn't that be an amazing place to have a driving range? But not just any driving range, I'd do something completely different. You see, I'm an avid golfer, but I hate the boring, lonely, repetitive golf practice experience.
In that moment, I had an insight: What if practicing golf could be fun?
The answer was making a game out of it. Not just a game for experts, but a whole range of golf-themed games people of all skill levels could play. And it would need to have food and drinks -- not just vending machine sodas and candy bars, but a great menu and bar for every taste. It would also need lots of other fun games like corn hole, darts and even karaoke. Since golf and business have always gone together, it should have plenty of space for business meetings and events, too.
The more I thought about it, the more I wanted something like this in San Diego. And since there wasn’t anything like it in our beautiful city, I decided to create it. A master team-builder and promoter, I immediately set about bringing together a team that could realize this big vision and make it a reality.
Today, I have the team of experienced and successful people. Plus, I’ve forged relationships with some of the best names in golf technology, sports marketing and design. Together, we're bringing a fun new experience to people everywhere, from avid golfers to millennials, from businesspeople to families.
