Topgolfs new venue is to be the first in Scotland
Topgolf Entertainment Group has slated a late 2022 opening for its new state-of-the-art venue in Glasgow.
With venues scattered globally in places such as the USA, Australia, and Germany, Topgolf has already made its mark in the UK with venues located in Chigwell, Watford, and Surrey with the new Glasgow venue set to be fourth in their UK catalogue.
“The UK holds a special place in our hearts as it’s where our Topgolf story began,” said Topgolf Vice President of International, Steve Lane. “It seems very apt that the next leg of our journey takes us to Scotland, the original home of golf. The Glasgow venue will be like nothing the country has ever seen. We’re thrilled to kick-off this development together with our partners at Ashfield and introduce a venue where friends and families can safely play together and share experiences.”
Construction has reportedly been progressing well, with property company, Ashfield Land, leading the development. The venue will be located just off the M74 near Rutherglen and consist of three-storeys with 72 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, as well as the usual point-scoring games and food and drinks menus.
Steven McGarva, Development Director at Ashfield Land, said: “We’re proud to be working with Topgolf to deliver its first attraction in Scotland, the home of golf, here at our Two 74 Glasgow development. The unique attraction is really starting to take shape and we’re pleased with how construction is progressing. The new Topgolf will create approximately 300 new jobs and we look forward to it opening to the people of Glasgow later this year. I’m sure it’ll be a huge success.”
In addition, the venue will offer an open-air roof terrace and bar capable of accomodating 70 people, as well as a lounge, event space with nearly 100 seats, and a drive-thru coffee shop and restaurant.
