Golf entertainment leader Topgolf will open its second Houston-area location in Spring on Tuesday, April 8, following its VIP grand opening party on April 7. The new 65,000-square-foot facility will be modeled after the existing Houston location in the Energy Corridor near Katy.
The private VIP grand opening party will showcase Topgolf’s premium food and drinks and entertainment from DJ Don Vaughn, Cosmopolitan’s “Bachelor of the Year” in Texas. Special appearances will also be made by: Houston Texans running back Arian Foster; Olympic athlete and world champion for ice speed skating Chad Hedwick; and pro golfer Shannon Fish from the television show “The Big Break.” The first 230 Houston residents to sign up for a Platinum or Gold membership at the new location received invitations to the party.
Topgolf Houston North is the company’s 11th location worldwide and sixth in the state of Texas. Topgolf opened its first facility in Houston in December 2012 and served a half million guests in the location’s first year of operation. Today the concept is ranked in the top 40 list of Houston tourist attractions on popular travel website TripAdvisor. In addition, Topgolf now employs approximately 900 Houston residents at its two facilities.
Constructed by ARCO/Murray, the three-level Topgolf Houston North facility includes: 102 climate-controlled hitting bays; a full-service restaurant and three bars; more than 230 high-definition flat-screen TVs; a rooftop terrace with fire pits; and 3,000 square feet of private event space.
“The city of Houston has been a game-changer for Topgolf,” said Topgolf CEO Tom Leverton. “It was the first city where we introduced the new model for our future Topgolf locations, and we are overcome with gratitude to the residents who have supported our success here. We are looking forward to exploring additional opportunities for Topgolf growth in the Houston market.”
