Topgolf has broken ground on their new Rogers location.
The new venue will be located just off I-49, next to the Walmart AMP.
Plans for the facility show a restaurant/driving range located close to the middle of the property facing north, and a parking lot on the south end of the lot. Players looking out over the range will have a view of the Walmart AMP, and will hit golf balls toward the concert venue neighboring to the north.
Morgan Schaff, Communications Manager for the Dallas-based company on Wednesday confirmed that Top Golf has broken ground in NWA.
For those who aren’t familiar, Top Golf is sort of a hybrid between an advanced driving range and a restaurant/sports bar/night club. Players hit golf balls containing microchips that track their shot’s accuracy and distance. Points are awarded for hitting targets in the outfield. The venues also serve food and alcohol, host occasional live music events, and are set up with plenty of TVs for watching sports. There are currently 41 locations open around the country, with several more in the works.
Most locations feature three levels, with more than 100 hitting bays that can host up to six players at a time.
The Rogers facility is expected to employ around 300 people in full and part time positions.
Schaff said that as of now, the NWA location is on track to open sometime in mid-2020.
