Thanks to Kevin for sending from the former Ace Hardware space. City Swing was located in City Center but closed at the end of March. The Mount Vernon Square location was hoping to open in April but obviously still has a minute to go. STAY TUNED.
Their website says:

Our space was created for a wide range of golfers – from those addicted to the game to those that have never imagined themselves participating.

The big day is tomorrow. All the details on Apple’s grand opening is here. I was lucky enough to take a tour yesterday and it is, indeed, absolutely dope.
