HOUSTON, TEXAS – April 17, 2013 – Golf entertainment leader TopGolf accepted last week the prestigious 2013 Landmark Award, presented by the Houston Business Journal. The Landmark Awards are granted to companies with real estate projects that have made a significant impression in the Houston community.
Located in the Energy Corridor, TopGolf Houston opened December 2012 following nine months of construction. The facility is expected to welcome more than 400,000 visitors its first year of operation. TopGolf Houston tied with Constellation Field, home of the Sugar Land Skeeters, in the Landmark Awards’ Hospitality/Entertainment category.
"Claiming the 2013 Landmark Award is an incredible honor for TopGolf, our construction partner ARCO/Murray and Aria Group Architects,” said TopGolf Real Estate Director Zach Shor. “This award further justifies our decision to use the TopGolf Houston facility as the model for all of our locations moving forward."
TopGolf modernizes the traditional driving range experience with six competitive games and advanced technology to track every player’s shots. The 65,000-square-foot, three-level facility features: climate-controlled hitting bays, 2,900 square feet of event space, an extensive food and beverage menu, and 230 high-definition flat-screen TVs.
The company estimates that its 10-year economic impact in the Houston community will exceed $50 million.
TopGolf is the emerging global leader in golf entertainment, with eight locations serving more than 1.5 million guests annually. Players hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while also awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield. Each facility offers an upscale, laid-back experience that features climate-controlled hitting bays and an impressive food and beverage menu crafted by an executive chef.
