CHICAGO – Sept. 2, 2015 – Golf entertainment leader Topgolf International will open the doors to its second Illinois location on Friday at 9 a.m., following Thursday evening’s private VIP grand opening party. The new 65,000-square-foot facility is the company’s 22nd location worldwide.
The private VIP grand opening party will feature music and entertainment, prize giveaways, complimentary food, drinks and, of course, Topgolf® play. A Red Bull DJ will be leading a dance party on the rooftop terrace. Invited guests include Topgolf Naperville monthly members, community leaders and social media contest winners.
Topgolf is a one-of-a-kind golf entertainment experience with seven competitive games and advanced technology to track the accuracy and distance of players’ shots. Constructed by ARCO/Murray, the three-level Topgolf Naperville includes: 102 climate-controlled hitting bays; a full-service restaurant and three bars; more than 250 high-definition flat-screen TVs; a rooftop terrace with fire pits; and 3,000 square feet of private event space. The Topgolf app, available for free download on iTunes and Google Play, allows users to change the channel on the TV in each hitting bay.
“The success of our Wood Dale location has paved the way for us to open a second Topgolf in Naperville,” said Topgolf Naperville Director of Operations Brett Hintz. “We think our fans will be very excited to see how the concept and amenities have evolved since we first came to Chicago eight years ago.”
Topgolf Naperville hired approximately 450 local residents to staff the location. Company officials estimate that this location will serve 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Topgolf Naperville’s 10-year economic output will exceed $264.5 million.
