Topgolf, a global golf entertainment leader, announced that Greenville is one of the several cities being considered to construct new Topgolf location.
Top golf is not your average driving range. Their venues typically feature three tiers of 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time. Players hit golf balls that contain computer chips that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield. They also offer food and beverages, music, games and hundreds of HDTVs.
Location in Greenville
According to documents filed with the county, Topgolf ‘s possible site is located on the 13.5 acres of land off Garlington Road near I-85. The Greenville County officials said that an official construction site has not been selected. Meeting with Planning Commission will be held later this month to discuss the proposed development.
The proposed development will include plans for 466 parking places, 90-room hotel, and a 7,000-square foot restaurant on 1.61 acres.
Currently, there are 24 Topgolf locations throughout the country and another 9 under construction. Along with Greenville, Topgolf said it’s looking at locations in Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, and Texas.
Topgolf offers competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track players’ shots. Once completed it will surely become a key part of Greenville’s business community, a place where people can enjoy golf, eat, drink and socialize.
