Topgolf Durham: A Decade-Old Tale with a Happy End

Topgolf Durham

When Topgolf announced its arrival in Durham back in 2014, locals were thrilled at the prospect of having the popular entertainment venue in their town. Little did they know that the journey to its opening would span nearly a decade.

Now, after years of anticipation, Topgolf has revealed that its newest location in South Durham, near Research Triangle Park, will officially open its doors on April 12, 2024. When the news was announced on April 1st, a spokesperson from Topgolf found it necessary to clarify that it was not an April Fools' Day joke.

This marks North Carolina's third Topgolf venue, joining the two existing locations in Charlotte. Situated at 4901 Topgolf Way, near the Page Road exit on Interstate 40, Topgolf Durham is poised to become a hub for entertainment and leisure in the area. Globally, this new venue will be Topgolf's 99th outdoor location and its 89th in the United States.

What is Topgolf?

Topgolf is a sports entertainment complex that offers a unique and interactive golfing experience. It combines elements of traditional golf with technology and entertainment to create a fun and engaging environment for players of all skill levels.

At Topgolf venues, players hit microchipped golf balls at targets on a driving range, earning points based on accuracy and distance. The facilities typically feature climate-controlled hitting bays, multiple levels for golfing, bars, restaurants, and event spaces, providing a social and recreational experience for visitors.

Gen Gray, Chief Operating and People Officer at Topgolf, expressed excitement about the long-awaited opening in Durham, stating, "We know you've been waiting for this opening, Durham, and trust me when I say everyone at Topgolf has been too! We're so excited to finally be able to welcome you to our signature Topgolf experience we're sure you won't get anywhere else."

Durham Mayor Leonardo Williams also shared his enthusiasm, highlighting the positive impact of Topgolf's opening on the community. He remarked, "Not only am I excited about getting to play at Topgolf, I'm excited for our city as Topgolf's opening brings with it 500 good-paying jobs for our community. We expect people to visit Topgolf from other areas of the state, which benefits our local economy and is a testament to Durham's growing range of entertainment offerings."

We look forward to sharing the excitement and experiences of the grand opening, and showcasing all that the venue has to offer to its visitors.
