Largest Topgolf franchise opens in Las Vegas on Thursday

17 May 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Topgolf Las Vegas opens its doors to locals, tourists, golfers and non-golfers alike Thursday, May 19, at 8 a.m., bringing the city a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.

Sitting on eight acres just behind MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Topgolf is the only entertainment venue of its kind, boasting 108 climate-controlled hitting bays, two pools, cabanas, a concert venue, VIP suites, five bars, special event spaces, a comfort food-inspired menu with creative beverage offerings, a Callaway Fitting Studio, a Topgolf retail shop, and more. Spanning four levels and 105,000 square feet, the Topgolf flagship location in Las Vegas stands as the biggest Topgolf venue to date.

"Topgolf is thrilled to bring a whole new kind of entertainment to the Las Vegas Strip," said Topgolf CEO Ken May. "There truly is no other place like Topgolf in Las Vegas — or anywhere else for that matter. Our flagship venue is the product of nearly four years of hard work and reimagining what the Topgolf experience could be like. We can’t wait to welcome our fans and new guests from all over the world to play at Topgolf."

At the heart of Topgolf, guests will find interactive golf games in the hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time, featuring lounge-style seating and HDTVs. Golf games can be enjoyed by all ages and skill levels, tracking the accuracy and distance of players’ shots through Topgolf’s microchipped golf balls.

Each level at Topgolf Las Vegas boasts additional areas to play – from cornhole and shuffleboard to everything in between – as well as various seating areas to hang out, have a cocktail or grab a bite to eat and enjoy the multiple views around the Las Vegas valley and the famed Las Vegas Strip. A mobile Sports Book located in The Yard, the main hub of Topgolf Las Vegas, allows sports fans to place a bet while taking in all the action on one of the venue’s numerous oversized screens. The Yard also serves as home to Topgolf’s main entertainment venue showcasing both national acts and local. The Birdie Bar provides a more intimate live entertainment experience with a small stage perfect for acoustic performances, standup comedy and more.

The venue is expected to serve upward of one million guests in its first year of operation and has already created more than 850 full- and part-time positions. It operates Sunday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. Bay pricing starts at $30 per hour for up to six players and varies depending on bay location and time of day. General admittance into Topgolf is free of charge.
