Topgolf opening its new tech-enabled sports: The grand launch of Topgolf’s newest technology-enabled golf facility in Renton, Washington, is set for this Friday. To the south of Seattle, a new Topgolf course is set to open.
This will be the first site in the state of Washington for the sports and entertainment organisation, which will open its 78th location soon. It will include a total of 102 open-air hitting bays spread across three floors. Toptracer, Topgolf’s ball-tracking device, will allow golfers to play high-tech driving range games such as “Angry Birds” and “Jewel Jam” on the driving range. Additionally, Topgolf is bringing with it its own Toptracer technology.
Swing Suite simulator bays powered by Full Swing technology will be included in the facility’s menu of food, drink, and entertainment options. Golf and other sports will benefit from the addition of these tees.
For many years, Topgolf’s Chief Operating Officer, Genifer Gray, has been looking forward to bringing her company’s “technology-enabled golf experience to players across the greater Seattle area where tech is at the centre of everything.”
Topgolf’s Renton location is being lauded as the first to feature a skylit centre atrium space. As a social hub, the atrium features a large video wall, lawn games, and chairs for guests to relax on. This location integrates the gaming experience with the patio, bars, and rooftop terraces.
The location of Topgolf Renton-Seattle, which will be located off Logan Avenue near Boeing’s facility and The Landing, a massive shopping and dining complex that first opened in 2007 in Renton, was first disclosed in August 2021.
By 2020, the Seattle metropolitan area would be home to the first-ever “Lounge by Topgolf” concept, which would have a food and beverage establishment as well as a virtual sports arena. The 9,200-square-foot lounge is located on the second level of Kirkland Urban, a 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development located just east of Seattle in Kirkland, Washington. Google bought the website in September of this year.
Around 500 people are expected to work at Topgolf’s new Renton location.
