Topgolf has finally landed in Australia with the first venue opening on the Gold Coast this week.
The first Australian Topgolf venue has officially opened on the Gold Coast last week and by all reports golfers, and non-golfers are already loving it.
Adorned with a huge neon sign and located next to Movieworld, Topgolf combines the familiar driving range facility with a game element that sees players awarded points for hitting targets.
Think driving range golf combined with ten-pin bowling.
From the press release:
Topgolf Gold Coast offers a new, year-round entertainment destination where guests, through the premium experience of play, food and music, can come together.
Topgolf Australia CEO, Kirk Edwards said he is proud to open Australia’s first Topgolf right here on the Gold Coast.
“This is an exciting time for everyone involved with our team now focused on creating great times for all guests and we cannot wait to welcome the local community for an unforgettable experience,” he said.
“At Topgolf, guests are assigned a private hitting bay where they can choose from seven games and score points by hitting microchipped balls into targets, all while enjoying food items form an outstanding chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs and music.
The three-level venue is fitted with 90 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time as well as 2,690 square feet of private event space for corporate and social gatherings.
Topgolf has been hugely popular in the US and has since spread to the UK and Australia with more venues opening in Mexico and Canada.
