Topgolf Augusta recently opened its doors in Georgia’s historic city, the hometown of the Masters. The new golf entertainment complex in Augusta is Topgolf’s first-of-its-kind, completely open-air venue. With health and safety concerns top of mind, serious measures have been put in place to reinforce the Topgolf”s commitment to tee off safely. The venue is outfitted with custom-designed bay dividers creating barriers between groups.
The company’s latest single-level concept features a technology-driven, community-focused design offering something for everyone.
The Augusta location features 36 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, outfitted with Topgolf’s Toptracer technology, including the signature fan-favorite game, Jewel Jam, and some of the world’s most iconic golf courses, such as Pebble Beach, St Andrews, Spanish Bay, and Spyglass Hill. Also, the venue features a nine-hole miniature golf course and backyard-style lawns with fire pits.
Guests are required to wear a facemask at Topgolf Augusta upon entry to the venue until they get to their table or hitting bay, and while playing mini-golf and while moving throughout the site. When in a bay or at a safe social distance from other guests who are not in the group, guests are not required to wear a mask – this includes while eating, drinking, or hitting. Masks are not necessary for children under the age of 11 or for those with underlying health conditions.
In addition to six-feet social distancing floor markers lining walkways, all Associates must undergo a temperature check and health screening before their shift. Bays, golf clubs, and game screens will be disinfected after each group. Common areas will be cleaned every hour by roving cleaning teams.
“Creating a fun and safe space is our primary goal and something we take seriously,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. “We believe people are looking for new, responsible ways to get outside and enjoy themselves. That is why we are thrilled to introduce our latest concept in Augusta. Topgolf Augusta, along with all our venues, is committed to providing a safe experience and ensuring our Guests can play with confidence.”
Topgolf in Augusta is the first venue with the new community-focused design. A second location also recently opened in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Construction is underway for a third venue in Waco, Texas.
