Topgolf to open second location in Charlotte

Staff report

CHARLOTTE — Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment community, will soon introduce double the fun to residents of the Queen City with a second Topgolf venue expected to open at the end of 2020.

Topgolf North Charlotte will bring the brand’s unique blend of technology and entertainment to a new location near UNC Charlotte, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Northlake Mall.

Located at the intersection of Interstate 85 and University City, the new location will provide a tech-driven experience where guests can go out swinging with the latest Topgolf technology and entertainment.

More than golf, Topgolf provides a chef-driven menu including seasonal offerings and top-shelf drinks, live music and year-round programming for all ages, in a climate-controlled outdoor space.

“We’ve been part of the Charlotte community for two years now and continue to see guests embracing the unique experience we bring to the city,” said Topgolf CEO Dolf Berle. “This city has a fast growing population and economy, and it’s that prosperity and Charlotte’s leading culture in food and entertainment that makes us want to build an even stronger bond with the community here.”

The 14.2-acre venue is expected to create approximately 500 new jobs. Charlotte’s other Topgolf property is located at Savoy Corporate Drive. Topgolf can also be played 24/7 on any mobile device with the free World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf app, the world’s leading realistic digital golf game.
