Global sports entertainment leader, Topgolf, announced its plans for its first location in Northwest Arkansas on Friday morning, according to a news release.
Topgolf is a sports entertainment venue that encourages people of all ages and skill levels to come together for a friendly competition.
Guests will be able to have access to point-scoring golf games using microchipped balls that instantly score themselves, showing players the accuracy and distance of their shots on a TV screen in their hitting bay, according to a news release.
Topgolf venues feature a chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs, flexible private event spaces and music in climate-controlled hitting bays for all-season comfort, according to a news release.
“We say that Topgolf is everyone’s game because it doesn’t matter your age or golfing abilities, everyone can have fun at Topgolf,” said Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. “We want to provide an additional entertainment destination and gathering place for the community to have a great time.”
The venue would sit on 11 acres near the Walmart AMP on South JB Hunt Drive. The company plans to lease the land from Hunt Ventures.
Topgolf officials say around 300 full-and-part time jobs would be created at this location.
“Northwest Arkansas has been on our road-map for a few years. The region is attractive to Topgolf for several reasons, including the strength of the local economy, continued population growth, and strong corporate presence,” said Callaway. “Together with Hunt Ventures, we are excited and working to finalize our business plans.”
