Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment company, will open its first completely open-air venue in Augusta, GA on Friday, July 3.

Topgolf Augusta’s 36 climate-controlled, outdoor hitting bays will be outfitted with Topgolf’s Toptracer technology, including the signature game, Jewel Jam, and some of the world’s iconic golf courses such as Pebble Beach, St Andrews, Spanish Bay, and Spyglass Hill. In addition, the venue offers food and beverage, a nine-hole miniature golf course and backyard-style lawns with fire pits.

With health and safety top of mind, Topgolf Augusta will be outfitted with custom-designed bay dividers creating barriers between groups. Guests will have access to free online reservations for a limited time while walk-ins are welcome. In addition to six-feet social distancing floor markers lining walkways, all employees must undergo a temperature check and health screening prior to their shift. Bays, golf clubs and game screens will be disinfected after each group and common areas will be disinfected every hour by roving cleaning teams.

“Creating a space that is both fun and safe is our primary goal and something we take seriously,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. “We believe people are looking for new, responsible ways to get outside and enjoy themselves, and that is why we are thrilled to introduce our latest concept in Augusta. Topgolf Augusta, along with all our venues, is committed to providing a safe experience and ensuring our Guests can play with confidence.”

As the first venue with the new community-focused design, the Topgolf Augusta concept is also under construction in Chattanooga, TN and Waco, TX.
