When TopGolf opened in Allen, TX in 2011 - approximately four years after the Dallas facility launched - it was the first time in the company's history that two U.S. locations existed in the same metropolitan area. Fast forward to 2013, and Dallas/Ft. Worth is now the first and only place in the U.S. that is home to three TopGolf facilities. (Well, four if you count our new corporate headquarters downtown! But more on that in a future post½) Opening this fall, The Colony will be TopGolf's 10th location worldwide.
Because we already have so many TopGolf fans in DFW, excitement for The Colony facility has been unprecedented. Friday afternoon, we broke ground at the site as business and community leaders cheered us on. The Colony High School football seniors even made an appearance at the ceremony, braving the chilly weather in their sleeveless practice jerseys.
Of course, we had to add our own flair to the groundbreaking by ditching the shovels-in-the-ground photo opp for a golf tee-off with The Colony City Councilmembers. Construction is now officially underway, and residents of The Colony will soon be able to tee off on a beautiful 250-yard outfield.
Thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support at the groundbreaking! Also, a special thanks to The Colony High School and Lakeview Middle School students and faculty for hosting TopGolf earlier in the week. We've had a blast getting to know The Colony community and can't wait to become your neighbor!
