Chasing Aces Golf Entertainment Complex Breaks Ground in Bossier City

by BIZ Magazine

State and city officials, joined by company representatives and local economic developers, marked a significant milestone on Friday, Feb. 9, as ground was broken for the highly anticipated Chasing Aces Golf entertainment complex near Bossier City’s riverfront.

The planned $25 million development, sprawling across 27 acres, promises to redefine golf entertainment in the region. Similar to the popular Top Golf franchise, Chasing Aces will feature an interactive, multi-level driving range boasting 30 bays. However, what sets it apart are the additional amenities and dining options designed to elevate the overall experience.

In addition to the driving range, Chasing Aces plans to incorporate a nine-hole smart course and an 18-hole putting course, catering to golf enthusiasts of all skill levels. The complex will also house multiple restaurant options, a comprehensive training center, and a pro shop, offering everything a golfer needs under one roof.

Anticipation surrounds the project’s planned opening in 2025, with expectations that it will create approximately 120 full and part-time jobs upon launch, along with an additional 200 construction jobs over the 14-month build period.

Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser lauded the development, recognizing its potential to bolster tourism in the Shreveport-Bossier area. “With tourism being one of the state’s top industries, I commend Northwest Louisiana for its investment in this new attraction, which will bring another family-friendly entertainment facility and also help grow the game of golf in Louisiana,” said Nungesser.

John Dudley, CEO and founder of Chasing Aces, expressed excitement about the project, highlighting its innovative approach to blending sports, entertainment, tourism, and technology. “Chasing Aces is a unique blend of sports, entertainment, tourism, and technology. This will set us apart from other golf entertainment complexes across the country,” said Dudley.

The development received support from BRF’s Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program (EAP), which played a crucial role in assisting Chasing Aces with startup services. Dave Smith, leading the EAP team, emphasized the significance of the project in attracting visitors to the region. “Our EAP team led by Dave Smith has worked with John Dudley of Chasing Aces from the idea stage to shovels in the ground today. John and his team have accomplished a major feat, and we congratulate them on their success,” stated John F. George Jr., BRF President and CEO.
