The One9 is born!

In the Summer of 2022, a group of Hilliard neighbors gathered in a driveway over a few cocktails. One mentions the need for an indoor golf simulator in Hilliard. Another mentions a building he owns in the heart of Old Hilliard with high ceilings and ample space. A third chimes in that the group should pool funds and build it out as a private club. That expands to a 100-person limit. And, one of the founding members suggests a name based on the 19th Hole (the watering hole, some might call it). The One9 is born!
