ST. LOUIS, Mo., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® today announced it has broken ground on its first location in Chesterfield, Mo. Topgolf will soon begin construction on the 65,000-square-foot venue, with an expected opening toward the end of 2018.
"The Topgolf project has already created a great deal of enthusiasm in the region as it will be the only entertainment venue of its kind in the St. Louis area. Topgolf will help increase our growing tourism base and offer a unique destination for golf enthusiasts and those just looking for a fun outing with friends, family or coworkers," said City of Chesterfield Mayor Bob Nation. "The City of Chesterfield is eager to have Topgolf begin construction here in The Valley."
Through the premium experience of play, food and music, Topgolf is inspiring people of all ages and skill levels – even non-golfers – to come together for playful competition. Guests can enjoy point-scoring golf games using microchipped balls that instantly score themselves, showing players the accuracy and distance of their shots instantly on a TV screen in their hitting bay. The venues also feature an outstanding chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs and music in climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round comfort. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, golf instruction and more.
Topgolf St. Louis will be located at 16851 N. Outer 40 Road in Chesterfield. The 14.34-acre property was purchased from Summit Ice Center Investors, LLC. 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. Topgolf estimates that the new location will serve approximately 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as "non-golfers."
"There has been amazing growth throughout the Chesterfield Valley in the last few years," said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. "The greater St. Louis area has proven to be a great place to live and work, paving the way for us to provide its residents with a new and exciting entertainment experience."
