Mobile to become 3rd Alabama facility
DALLAS – When Topgolf opens its newest facility in Mobile later this year, it will have Alabama covered in three areas.
With existing sites already in Huntsville and Birmingham, the Mobile entity will give Topgolf facilities in the northern, central and southern portions of the state.
Topgolf announced that construction is underway in Mobile to complete the trifecta.
The venue will be located near the intersection of I-65 and Government Boulevard in the McGowan Park Shopping Center.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to be part of the city’s growing culture and excited to contribute another way for locals to have fun,” Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway said. “The warm welcome we received as we began construction efforts has been second to none, and we’re looking forward to enabling communities in and around Mobile to come play around.”
Topgolf: Golf and Not Golf
At Topgolf Mobile, the “not golf” is just as much fun as the “golf.”
Golf: The future two-level venue will feature 60 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays to ensure maximum player comfort no matter the time of year. Players of all ages will be able to experience the sport in a new way thanks to the brand’s signature, technology-driven point-scoring golf games.
With the help of the company’s Toptracer ball-tracking technology – which traces each ball’s flight path, distance and more – players will be able to play interactive games like Angry Birds. In addition to the signature game play, Topgolf Mobile will feature a nine-hole mini-golf course to amplify the golfing fun.
Not Golf: With an energetic and fun environment, The Mobile facility will offer players access to a full-service restaurant with chef-inspired menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round family-friendly programming.
On top of that, Topgolf Mobile’s private event spaces will be the perfect place to host any occasion – from business meetings to bachelor parties.
“At the City of Mobile, our team is always working to bring visitors into Mobile and provide attractions and entertainment for Mobilians to enjoy: Topgolf does both,” Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson said. “We are excited the project has broken ground, and I look forward to teeing off soon.”
Alongside entertainment, Topgolf Mobile will create roughly 150 full- and part-time jobs, and the opportunity for future Topgolf Playmakers (associates) to grow their careers, work in a unique culture-first environment and be part of a company that welcomes everyone as they are.
“We’re pleased with the progress Topgolf is making on its 60-bay venue near the intersection of I-65 and I-10 in Mobile,” Mobile County Commission President Connie Hudson said.
“The Mobile County Commission looks forward to its opening, not only for the anticipated impact of the multimillion-dollar capital investment in drawing visitors to our region, but for the construction jobs and new hospitality and management jobs required for facility operations,” Hudson said.
Mobile Chamber President and CEO Bradley Byrne said having Topgolf “is a major milestone for Mobile and a testament to our city and county’s commitment to attracting top-tier development and a vibrant future.”
