Watertown, S.D.–One of downtown Watertown’s historic buildings has gotten a face lift, and re-opens Thursday under new ownership, and a new name.

The 19th Hole at 28 North Broadway is a sports bar and grill that for 25 years housed Terry’s Hot Rod Lounge, and before that, was known as the Busy Bee Cafe and the Double D Cafe.

The 19th Hole is a family-owned business of Todd and Lynn Morris, daughter Abby Thomas and husband Nathan, and daughter Alexa Morris and her fiancee Lance Tolley.

Abby and Nathan own and operate the Watertown Nutrition Center next door. Abby explains how the family got into the sports bar business…

Abby tells KWAT News this will be a family-friendly establishment…

The 19th Hole held a “soft opening” over the weekend, and it went well…

The building has seen a nearly complete makeover…

Even before they officially open their doors, there are plans for expansion…

The 19th Hole has a beer and wine license, and a food menu that will include pizzas, burgers and all-beef hot dogs. Patrons will find five large flat-panel televisions to view their favorite game, along with dart boards and a jukebox.

They officially open for business this Thursday (September 8th). They’ll be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
