Topgolf Looking To Open Its Second Location in Charlotte


charlotte-top-golf-university-city-locationTopgolf Charlotte has been one of the most highly-anticipated developments in our city, with tens of thousands of social media shares on almost every article written about it.

Now, just a month before they open on their first Charlotte-area location, they’re already planning on building their second one.

A re-submitted zoning proposal has been filed for a major development project in University City, near West Mallard Creek Rd. and I-85, that would include 395 apartments and 45,000 square feet of mixed-use space, including “eating/drinking/entertainment with golf-related entertainment uses” (the revised plans also included Topgolf logos):


According to the Charlotte Business Journal, “a spokeswoman for Topgolf said the company is ‘looking into a second site in the area’, but declined to comment on specifics.”

Topgolf is a “golf entertainment complex” offering targeted games where players hit ‘microchipped’ balls as close to various targets and special zones as possible. The balls individually record their location before and after they are hit, and give individual scores for each player.

They will also feature a full food and drink menu – catering to golfers and non-golfers of all skill levels.

The high-tech golf company now has 30 facilities around the U.S. and 3 in the U.K., and their currently expanding to 14 new facilities in the US, Mexico, and Australia.
