Drive Shack Shifts Strategy, No Longer Pursues Marietta Market

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Drive Shack no longer plans to develop a venue in Marietta, GA. The
change in direction comes as part of the company’s enhanced strategy and
plans for growth, now led by new CEO Ken May.

Previously, May served as CEO of Topgolf where he was pivotal in the
business’s growth, opening 24 stores and quadrupling the company’s
workforce, all in just four years. Under his guidance Drive Shack aims
to be positioned for similar growth. As part of the shift in direction,
the company will be taking a deeper look at locations in which American
Golf, a Drive Shack Inc. subsidiary, currently operates.

The City of Marietta has been an incredible partner and advocate of
Drive Shack. We greatly appreciate and are thankful for all the support
they have given us.


Drive Shack Inc. (NYSE:DS) is a publicly traded owner and operator of
golf-related leisure and entertainment businesses. The company’s
subsidiaries include American Golf, its traditional golf enterprise that
operates private, resort and public golf courses nationwide, and Drive
