Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and golf entertainment company, is set to open its 79th global venue in Knoxville, Tennessee, on Friday, Aug. 12.
"We are excited to welcome the Knoxville community and bring more Tennesseans more opportunities to play the game of golf in their own way," said Topgolf Chief Operating Officer Gen Gray.
"As a company focused on bringing diversity, a new personality and attitude to this game of golf, we look forward to bringing our unique experience to this community."
The open-air, two-level venue will feature 72 outdoor hitting bays with all the comforts of inside, a full-service restaurant with chef-inspired menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round family-friendly programming for all ages. The venue is fully equipped with Topgolf's latest technology including the company's signature Toptracer technology. Toptracer is the most trusted ball-tracing technology in the golf industry, powering the experience at the venue and enabling Players at Topgolf to enjoy favorite games like Angry Birds and Jewel Jam. The venue will also feature an outdoor patio, rooftop terrace and private event space.
Located off Interstate 40 in Farragut across from the Turkey Creek shopping center, Topgolf Knoxville becomes the third venue to serve the state along with venues in Nashville and Chattanooga. The two-story venue architecture design is the first of its kind in Tennessee.
The venue will employ approximately 300 Playmakers (aka Associates), further strengthening the region's economy.
