If approved, the 65,000-sq. ft. venue would begin construction later this year and is expected to open in spring 2017. The three-level facility would be open year-round, and include up to 3,000 sq. ft. of private event space with 102 climate-controlled hitting bays, and an extensive menu.
Topgolf International has announced Fishers as its first location planned in Indiana. Pending approval from the Fishers City Council at its meeting on January 20, Topgolf(®) would begin construction on the 65,000-sq. ft. venue later this year with an expected opening of spring 2017.
The three-level location, which would be open year-round, includes up to 3,000-sq. ft. of private event space and 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time. Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Development Zach Shor estimates that Topgolf Fishers would serve approximately 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as “non-golfers.”
Topgolf offers competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track the accuracy and distance of players’ shots. Those who just want to relax can enjoy the upscale, laid-back ambiance that boasts more than 230 high-definition flat-screen TVs and an extensive food and beverage menu.
“As we look to expand in the Midwest, Indianapolis is a key market that has been on Topgolf’s radar for a long time,” said Shor. “Fishers offers a centralized location in the state and close proximity to Indianapolis. It’s a vibrant community that is frequently recognized as a top place to live and work, and we hope to provide residents a new destination for entertainment.”
“Topgolf is an innovative leader in the industry with a one-of-a-kind product, and we are very excited about the proposal,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “The project fits our vision for the city and will offer a unique, state-of-the-art entertainment option for our residents and visitors to this community. Frequently lauded by national media as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies, Topgolf fits our vision.”
Topgolf creates 450 full- and part-time jobs at each of its venues. Its economic output in Fishers alone is expected to exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year-period, according to a third-party audit.
“The special thing about Topgolf is that you don’t have to be a golfer to have fun at our venue,” said Shor. “We have something for everyone, from a KidZone program for families to social leagues and live music for adults. Topgolf is a perfect spot for a family day out, a date night, a business meeting or even just dinner with friends.”
