Topgolf has broken ground on another Southeast Florida location as it gets closer to its regional debut.
The sports entertainment company recently started construction on a 65,000-square-foot venue at the 12.63-acre site at the northwest corner of 12th Street and the Florida Turnpike extension in Doral. It's expected to open in summer 2018.
Topgolf is also expected to open its first venue in Southeast Florida later this year at 17321 N.W. 7th Ave. in Miami Gardens. It's expected to create 500 full- and part-time jobs and generate a local economic impact of $265 million over 10 years
That job creation and economic impact could double with a second local Topgolf.
Topgolf features a three-story building of hitting bays where players whack golf balls embedded with radio frequency identification microchips at targets below to score points. The venues include a full-service restaurant, bar, lounge and corporate meeting space.
“Doral has the combination of fantastic weather year-round and a vibrant community,” said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. “We are confident that Topgolf is going to be an excellent addition to the area, providing residents and tourists alike with a fun entertainment experience that everyone can enjoy.”
