DALLAS, July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment community, will continue expansion in Florida with the announcement of two new venues in Lake Mary and St. Petersburg. Lake Mary broke ground recently and St. Petersburg's groundbreaking will commence in coming weeks, with projected openings for both venues slated for next year.
"Florida has always been important to Topgolf, as we have been connecting communities and creating moments that matter at five venues throughout the state for a number of years," said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. "As we continue our bold and purposeful approach to growth, we are thrilled to extend our special blend of technology and entertainment to Lake Mary and St. Petersburg."
What began as a technology that enhanced the game of golf now encompasses a range of unmatched experiences, including innovative ways to experience the game – in-person, virtually or digitally. At our Topgolf venues, we invite guests, including golfers and non-golfers alike, to experience point-scoring games using microchipped balls that instantly show performance data (including accuracy and distance) on a TV screen in the bay, while also enjoying a chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs, flexible private event spaces and music. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, lessons and other fun activities and events.
The Lake Mary and St. Petersburg Topgolf venues will each hire more than 400 full- and part-time Associates throughout the next year and expect to serve approximately 450,000 Guests annually.
More details about the specific venues will be announced in coming months. For more information, please visit topgolf.com or connect with us using @Topgolf on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
