Topgolf Aims for 2016 Tulsa Opening
The premier golf entertainment company looks to expand its Oklahoma presence
TULSA – May 20, 2015 – Topgolf International is only one month shy from opening its first Oklahoma location in Oklahoma City, and the company today confirmed it is already looking to expand in the state. Topgolf is actively seeking site locations in the Tulsa market with the hope of opening there within the next 12-18 months.
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. The company, based in Dallas, has 16 locations worldwide with another 11 under construction.
“We are incredibly grateful and excited for the support and anticipation the Oklahoma market has shown for Topgolf,” said Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Zach Shor. “Tulsa is a vibrant and fast-growing city with a great history, so it is a natural fit for a potential Topgolf location.”
Topgolf’s economic impact in its community is remarkable, creating more than 450 jobs at each location and serving as an anchor tenant that tends to attract other popular franchises to the area. In fact, its economic output in Oklahoma City is expected to exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year-period, according to a third-party audit.
Meanwhile, Topgolf Oklahoma City will open to the public on June 19. Residents can follow Topgolf’s progress in Oklahoma at facebook.com/topgolfokc and @TopgolfOKC on Twitter and Instagram.

Each facility offers an upscale and playful experience, featuring an impressive food and beverage menu, music, games, climate-controlled hitting bays, and hundreds of HDTVs.
