COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment community, announced today it has reached a mutual agreement with the developer of Polaris Pointe to complete construction and assume operations of the new Topgolf venue. The venue, originally planned by Polaris Pointe local developer Gary Erickson, was previously slated to open as Crush Golf, and will now open this summer as Topgolf as the company introduces its tech-driven entertainment experience to the Colorado Springs community. Conveniently located at the Polaris Pointe complex at the new Powers Blvd. and I-25 interchange, the new venue will not only bring an innovative experience, but also more than 200 careers to the area. This latest Topgolf venue brings the total number of venues serving the state of Colorado to three, with existing Denver-area venues in Centennial and Thornton.
"Topgolf values the connections we have built throughout the state of Colorado and we look forward to bringing another unique and entertaining experience to the community of Colorado Springs," said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. "We were thrilled to work with Polaris Pointe as we add this location to the Topgolf family of venues for all to safely enjoy."
Guests of the new, two-level Topgolf venue will soon experience a tech-driven place to play with point-scoring games in the venue's 74 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, chef-driven menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round programming. Additionally, Topgolf Colorado Springs will be a multi-level venue, fully equipped with Topgolf's Toptracer technology, which offers an interactive experience and includes fan-favorite Topgolf games such as Angry Birds and Jewel Jam. Toptracer, the same ball-tracing technology seen while watching major golf tournaments on television, is the most trusted and most used ball-tracing technology that continues to revolutionize the game of golf and power the experience of more than 8,500 driving range bays across the globe.
"From the beginning, the vision was to create a first-of-its-kind gathering place for the community of Colorado Springs and we are looking forward to Topgolf bringing this vision to life," said Polaris Pointe developer Gary Erickson. "We know this community has been looking forward to a place to practice their swing, have good food and drinks, or simply enjoy time with their friends and family. We know the new Topgolf will deliver this experience as we welcome them to the Polaris Pointe complex."
As a rapidly growing sports and entertainment brand with a vibrant community of fans, Topgolf is credited with helping make the game of golf more accessible through its variety of technology-driven experiences. The venue will offer a lively and fun environment that can be enjoyed year-round with its outdoor heated areas.
Topgolf plans to open the new venue's doors in the summer of 2021. The company is actively hiring a variety of positions in preparation for opening, and applicants can explore the latest available career opportunities by visiting the Topgolf Careers website.
