The city of Schaumburg in the greater Chicago area will be the latest US site to open for the Topgolf Entertainment Group on November 15.
The three-level complex will offer high-tech entertainment and gaming, 102 climate-controlled hitting bays, diverse food menu, hand-crafted cocktails, a 5,000sq.ft outdoor patio, 3,000sq.ft of corporate and social event spaces and music among other features.
As a result of this, Topgolf will be relocating the legacy Wood Dale location and consolidate its operations with the new Schaumburg site.
"Topgolf values the relationships we have built with the Greater Chicago community over the past 12 years," said Topgolf Entertainment Group CEO Dolf Berle. "We look forward to bringing an upgraded and modernised experience to Schaumburg, further connecting the local community in meaningful ways. Our experienced associates from Wood Dale will be joining the Schaumburg team to continue providing the hospitality and service that the community has grown to know and love."
Guests can enjoy point-scoring games using microchipped balls that instantly show performance data, including accuracy and distance, on a TV screen in the bay. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, lessons and much more.
The Park District of Wood Dale, which is responsible for the community's parks and recreational facilities, will convert Topgolf Wood Dale to a traditional driving range powered by Toptracer technology. Toptracer Range equips driving ranges with real-time data to help players at all levels improve their skills using the same advanced ball-tracing technology seen on television.
Currently, Topgolf operates nearly 60 sites worldwide and plans are underway to open new venues in US and UK markets, as well as Mexico, Dubai, Canada and central Europe.
