As Chief Operating Officer of Topgolf International, Zach Shor is responsible for helping localize the Topgolf brand all over the world. He manages the day to day operations of the Topgolf International team, while searching for international partners to help establish Topgolf venues in new countries. He is focused on fostering an international Guest experience that is authentic both to Topgolf and local culture.
Previously, Zach served as Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Development, overseeing all aspects of site selection, including the negotiation, entitlement and development processes. He has helped secure dozens of Topgolf locations since joining Topgolf in July 2011. In 2017, Zach was recognized by Chain Store Age as one of 10 under 40 in real estate to watch.
In a previous life, Zach taught kindergarten at a small private school in Manhattan. He taught for a year, then decided it was time to come home and move to Dallas for Topgolf in 2011. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in English from New York University, and he received his MBA in real estate and finance from Southern Methodist University.
Due to his frequent travels, Zach’s primary hobbies include sleeping in his own bed and cooking at home. He’s also a live music junkie and tries to go to shows as often as he can. Ironically, he’s a horrendous golfer, but he’s pretty much made peace with that.
