“We have made socializing a sport through a blend of technology and entertainment,” said Richard Barrick, who co-owns the business with Jon Walker. “No matter the occasion or who you share it with, we believe that every great time starts with golf, is fueled by food and drinks, moved by music, and all made possible through community. We are proud to call the River District our home.”

“Richard and Jon have taken a section of this old tobacco warehouse building and brought it back to life with new furniture and new features. River District Golf & Social adds another destination draw to the River District,” said Mayor Alonzo Jones. “On behalf of City Council, City staff, and all citizens of Danville, I congratulate you on the opening of Danville’s newest entertainment venue.”
