Topgolf Confirms Orlando Location at the PGA Show

ORLANDO, Fla., (FNN NEWS) — In a live presentation at the PGA Show, global golf entertainment leader Topgolf Entertainment Group officially unveiled Orlando as its third location planned in Florida. Topgolf® will begin construction on the 65,000-square-foot venue in February; it is expected to open to the public in early 2017.

Topgolf is the only entertainment center of its kind, offering competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track the accuracy and distance of players’ shots. Those who just want to relax can enjoy the upscale, laid-back ambiance that boasts more than 230 high-definition flat-screen TVs and an extensive food and beverage menu.

Orlando is one of the biggest entertainment and tourism markets in the United States,” said Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Development Zach Shor. “With more than 50 million people per year going for the theme parks and conventions, Topgolf is sure to be a go-to venue for people looking to entertain and be entertained.”

The new three-level location will include up to 3,000 square feet of private event space and 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time. Shor estimates that Topgolf Orlando will serve upward of 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as “non-golfers.”

Topgolf’s economic impact in its local communities is remarkable, creating 450 full- and part-time jobs at each location and serving as an anchor tenant that tends to attract other popular franchises to the area. In fact, its economic output in Orlando alone is expected to exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year-period, according to a third-party audit.
