GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — The entertainment venue Topgolf Greenville is days away from opening off Pelham Road and I-85.
This is the company’s 50th location in the U.S. Inside there are three bars, a restaurant, two outdoor lounge areas including a rooftop terrace with a fire pit and three levels of over 70 golf bays.
“It goes from beginner to advanced and our nets go all the way out to 215 yards,” Topgolf Greenville Marketing Manager Sean O’Connell says.
“Non-golfers still have a great time with our food and beverage and the awesome live music and DJs and TVs in each bay,” he says.
Instructors are on staff to help the majority of guests who have little or no experience golfing.
“54% of them have never picked up a golf club or they’re not a traditional golfer so it’s a great opportunity to learn the game of golf,” Director of Instruction Scott Baker says. “We do classes, individual instruction and we have our summer academy.”
Nine games are available, with “Topgolf” being the most popular. Players are encouraged to aim for various targets that award points depending on distance and accuracy.
“Each of the golf balls have a microchip in them so when you hit the golf ball out into the big field of targets, it’ll say you hit it 114 into the blue target… you get 10 points for that,” O’Connell explains.
With a nearby hotel under construction and plans to add traffic lights and widen Garlington Rd., the venue is already showing signs of impacting the local economy and becoming a magnetic entertainment hub.
“I think we’re going to pull obviously from Greenville and Spartanburg, maybe even down to Columbia,” O’Connell says.
Pricing is by the hour, not per person and you can find more information regarding Topgolf Greenville’s pricing here. Eight people can gather around each bay, but the game panel only allows for six players.
