DALLAS, March 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Global sports and entertainment leader Topgolf Entertainment Group announces the latest addition to its 2021 opening line-up with plans to bring its technology-enabled entertainment experience to the Fort Myers community. This highly anticipated venue, expected to open in late 2021, will bring the total number of open venues serving Floridians to seven as Topgolf introduces its unique experience to southwest Florida.
The Fort Myers venue will offer the familiar Topgolf experience guests have grown to know and love in an open-air and safe multi-level environment. Guests will enjoy Topgolf's signature, tech-driven fun with point-scoring games in the outdoor hitting bays, chef-driven menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round programming for all ages in a climate-controlled space. In addition to private event space, this venue will also offer an outdoor patio and rooftop terrace.
"Topgolf has a strong relationship with our Guests throughout the state of Florida and we look forward to introducing our experience to the Fort Myers community," said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. "We are thrilled to be part of the Cypress Lakes development, which will allow us to create memorable moments for so many Guests. The City of Fort Myers and Lee County have been great to work with and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership together."
Located along the newly named "Topgolf Way" off I-75 behind the Colonial Square Town Center near the new Cypress Lakes development, Topgolf is anticipated to become a must-do destination in Fort Myers. The new, two-level venue, which is expected to employ more than 300 Associates once open, will feature 72 hitting bays with 11 feet from tee to tee and custom-made bay dividers for extra safety and comfort. Construction efforts are actively underway, with crews breaking ground on the new venue earlier this year.
"Topgolf enhances the desirability of our city's entertainment offerings, and is a great fit for southwest Florida," said Saeed Kazemi, P.E., City Manager. "It's exciting to welcome the brand that revolutionized the sports and entertainment experience."
As one of the world's fastest-growing sports and entertainment brands, Topgolf is credited with making the game of golf more inclusive and accessible through its variety of technology-driven experiences. The experience, built on a foundation of fun, community and inclusivity, has created a movement across the globe as the company makes its mark as a leader in the sports and entertainment industry.
