Topgolf announces new Orlando location

Topgolf Entertainment Group officially announced Orlando as its third location planned in Florida. It will begin construction on the 65,000-square-foot venue in February, and it is expected to open to the public in early 2017.

Topgolf Orlando will be located at Convention Way and Universal Boulevard, right across the street from the Orange County Convention Center. This comes on the heels of another announcement, in which Topgolf said it acquired World Golf Tour, the largest virtual golf company. It also launched a holding company and two new divisions.

"Orlando is one of the biggest entertainment and tourism markets in the United States," said Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Development Zach Shor. "With more than 50 million people per year going for the theme parks and conventions, Topgolf is sure to be a go-to venue for people looking to entertain and be entertained."

The new three-level location will include up to 3,000 square feet of private event space and 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time. Shor estimates that Topgolf Orlando will serve upward of 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as "non-golfers."

Topgolf has created 450 full- and part-time jobs at each location. Its economic output in Orlando alone is expected to exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year-period, according to a third-party audit.

Topgolf Entertainment Group (TEG) is the parent holding company of Topgolf, Topgolf International and Topgolf Media. TEG is led by Co-Chairman and CEO Erik Anderson. It has 24 locations serving 8 million guests annually.
