Topgolf Salt Lake City is here!! The brand-spanking new Salt Lake City Topgolf opened it’s doors to the public on Friday May 20, 2016 at 9am. While many golf courses are struggling to stay open across the U.S. there’s a new golf company that seems to be booming, and its next big market is Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake City has never seen anything like this, until now. Even if you suck at golf, like I do, this is awesome!
Topgolf Salt Lake City is like a mix of a driving range, a high-end bowling alley (like Jupiter Bowl or Lucky Strike) and an adult-focused arcade (like Dave & Buster’s). A large part of the Topgolf experience is food and beverages with it making up nearly half of their revenue! The food menu goes way beyond the typical neighborhood sports bar, and offers things like a brunch menu and specialty desserts. Word on the street is that their new “Banh Mi” Vietnamese sandwich is off the chain! Ohh, and if you leave without trying the BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese sandwich, you should be fined.
It’s a concept that takes the idea of a standard driving range and transforms it into a high-end party atmosphere. The driving range “bays” are much larger than a typical driving range with enough space for up to six people, similar to a bowling alley where a group can use a single lane. Each bay has HDTVs with dining high-tops, while bars, billiards, shuffleboard, Xbox Connect, fire pits and other entertainment options fill the rest of the facility.
The driving range takes golf into the 21st Century by embedding microchips within each golf ball. The range itself has large dartboard-style bullseye holes scattered throughout it. Players score points by getting closer to the middle of each bullseye. The micro-chipped balls then keep each player’s score, while the required membership means players can travel between Topgolf locations while keeping track of their score and skill history.
The Topgolf company is quickly expanding; planning to double their guests numbers over the next 18 months (this year they’re expecting 8 million guests, with 19 Million being 2017’s goal). Currently Topgolf has 22 locations, including 3 in the UK, with another 8 in the works throughout the U.S. We are stoked that Topgolf Salt Lake City is the first in Utah!
Where is Topgolf Salt Lake City?
The Salt Lake City Topgolf location will be in the Jordan River bottom area in Midvale, just a block or so west of the 7200 S exit of I-15. Since Salt Lake doesn’t have a Dave & Buster’s (or anything like it), Topgolf will be a brand new concept for the Salt Lake City area.
The Topgolf Salt Lake City facility will be approx. 65,000 sq. ft., on a nearly 12 acre plot, just west of Winco in Midvale. Topgolf Salt Lake City will be centrally located in Midvale, right off the 7200 S exit of I-15. The huge facility is currently under construction next to Winco at 920 Jordan River Blvd, Midvale, UT 84047.Currently this area is a hotbed for construiction and development. Overstock.com and Zagg are building their new corporate headquarters across the street from Topgolf, along with a handful of new hotels.
There is no confirmation on exactly when the Salt Lake City location will open, but according to Topgolf’s website, it should open sometime in early 2016. Currently the closest Topgolf to us in Salt Lake City is the one outside Denver, CO. At the time I wrote this, Topgolf is currently building a location in Las Vegas as well.
