Topgolf in Waco finally has an opening date!
The company announced the Waco location of Topgolf will be open beginning Friday, April 23, 2021.
The facility features hitting bays that are 11 feet apart, food that can be ordered from the pavilion and a 9-hole mini-golf course.
Unlike other Topgolf's in the area the Waco facility is only one story. Manager of sales and community engagement Brooke Hill says it's because of Waco's size they decided to roll out their community model.
"When we come into a city that is more a community feel how do we embrace the families that are going to be coming out to our venue," Hill said.
With the area expanding, even after a pandemic Hill says the Topgolf team has high hopes for their new home.
"Waco is just a great choice. When you look at the city as a whole there is so much growth here currently," Hill said.
The venue includes 30 climate-controlled hitting bays outfitted with Topgolf's proprietary Toptracer technology for people to partake in fan-favorite games such as Angry Birds by Topgolf and Jewel Jam and play iconic virtual golf courses like Pebble Beach and St Andrews.
COVID-19 guidelines will be in place such as social distancing and protocols that will keep guests and associates protected. The staff has also enhanced disinfecting measures throughout the facility.
The facility will be able to accommodate 600 guests with 180 golfers at a time. One of the first that got to try out the new facility was Donald Bailey. He lives in Woodway and excited to have something fun for the grand kids.
"I like it because it's great for the grand kids, when I go out, I usually take the grand kids with me. They all like it, and they're all expert golfers. I mean they can hit the ball sometimes," Bailey said.
He says it's nice to see Waco grow at a time like this.
"Waco has a lot of things but based on the size of Waco not that many things. This is just something new and it'll be fun for everybody, and I think they'll do a lot of business here," Bailey said.
You'll also see nods to the Waco community as you walk through the facility, Hill says it's important to make their guests feel welcomed.
"We care about our community, so any time we come into a new city we look for opportunities to represent that city but to also become a part of it," Hill said.
Reservations are available 7 days out for Guests to book prior to visiting the venue, but walk-ins are welcome.
Topgolf is located at 2301 Creekview Dr. and is open Monday through Thursday 10 am to 11 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am to 12 am and Sunday 10 am to 11 pm.
