Las Vegas, Nev. (May 21, 2016)–Topgolf has become a phenomenon worldwide, and now the latest opening for the company comes in Las Vegas, just behind the MGM Grand resort and among the glitter and lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Topgolf Las Vegas is said to be the largest and “most over-the-top” Topgolf facility in the world. It officially opened this week. — By Brian Hurlburt.
Golf Digest called it the “most insane driving range ever” but this Topgolf is much more than a range. It features hundreds of televisions, including four huge screens at the end of the hitting area, two swimming pools, a betting window, several bars, a stage for concerts, restaurants, cabanas and four stories. Golf bay reservations range from $30-75 per hour, depending upon time of day and day of week. Each comes with a host.
Another note is that Topgolf officials reveal that most customers at Topgolf would consider themselves non-golfers so it is more an entertainment destination than a spot to go bang balls. There is really something for everyone at Topgolf Las Vegas.
