Portland City Councilors approved the license for X-Golf on Monday night. The restaurant will also have a golf retail shop as well as…wait for it….six virtual golf simulators so you can swing ‘em 12 months of the year!

This new concept coming to Portland is the brainchild of Joseph and Peter Atwood. The license application states that X-Golf will  “provide an upscale, family-friendly, sports bar/restaurant for the people of Greater Portland to come and enjoy a meal, watch a televised sporting event, or play a round of virtual golf.” This place sounds like it will be a great place to watch all kinds of sports! And with more and more people moving into new condos at Hobson's Wharf and 25 High Street, X-Golf is sure to be a big hit in the neighborhood. FORE!

And of course, the sports bar and restaurant will have yummy pub food.  Golf…Sports….Food….Beverages. Sounds like heaven to us!
