Inc. magazine names TopGolf to its 2013 500|5000 list
of nation’s most successful private companies
DALLAS – August 20, 2013 – Golf entertainment leader TopGolf today received national recognition from Inc. magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., as measured by overall revenue growth over a three-year period.
Founded in London in 2000, TopGolf is the only entertainment center of its kind, offering competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track every player’s shots. This November, TopGolf will celebrate 10 million visits in conjunction with the opening of its 10th location in The Colony, TX.
Inc. introduced its ranked list of fastest-growing privately held companies in 1982 to offer readers a rich understanding of the country’s entrepreneurial landscape. Such companies as Pandora, 7 Eleven, Toys ‘R’ Us, Zappos.com and other household-name brands have previously been featured on the list.
This year, TopGolf ranks #2,894 of 5,000 U.S. companies, as evidenced by the company’s 118-percent growth rate from 2009 to 2012. During this period, TopGolf created nearly 1,000 jobs in the consumer products and services industry. TopGolf’s growth will continue at a remarkable pace as it is slated to open three new facilities in Scottsdale, AZ, Alpharetta, GA and North Houston, TX in spring 2014.
“The people of TopGolf are ecstatic to receive this honor,” said TopGolf CEO Tom Leverton. “To be recognized as an industry leader by Inc. magazine is incredibly special and humbling.”
