The Patchogue Zoning, Planning and Architectural Review boards approved the Birdies application. The new golf simulation business is proposed for the property located at 17-19 North Ocean Avenue, beside the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce office. The building is located in the D-3 business zone.
Earlier this month, attorney representing the applicant, Larry Davis, brought the application in front of the board with co-owner Brendan Kost. The building will consist of six golf simulation areas on the second floor and one on the first floor, accompanied by a bar.
The downstairs bar area will not have a restaurant, but will feature food and drink. A large screen will also be featured with the ability to project sports games. An outdoor area is also accessible for refreshments and potentially food trucks. The business will be open until midnight or 2 a.m.
Last week, the application moved to the planning and architectural review boards for site-plan review. According to Davis and Kost, the hope is to begin construction this summer and to open by the fall. The application received two public comments of support.
Last month, the zoning board approved a special multi-use permit via the Village of Patchogue Zoning Board to open a gaming room/amusement facility.
After the meeting, the boards moved to approve the site plan conditionally, pending NYS Liquor Authority approvals, Village Board of Trustees food truck approval, noise permit approval by the Village Clerks office as well as a resubmitted revised plan noting some minor exterior modifications.
