Tee time nears for Topgolf

New business in Centennial aims for August opening

Posted

Topgolf's first Colorado location is nearing completion in Centennial, and according to Director of Operations Casey Daniel, the company is hoping for a grand opening in August.

After some harsh weather, the opening date at 10601 East Easter Avenue was pushed from spring to the end of summer. The last project the construction crews are working on is the outfield, she said.

“The nets are up,” Daniel said. “We're really excited to break ground in Colorado. With the demographic, 300 days of sunshine and access and location next to business parks, there's nothing else like this in the state. It's different because this place is going to be open all year round.”

The three-level, 65,000-square-foot venue for games, food, drink, sports and music is the 20 Topgolf location in the United States. The entertainment facility has extensive options for food and beverage, offers golf lessons, games and a 215-yard outfield with 102 hitting bays.

Each bay has an LCD television for guests to change channels, according to a news release. A lounge features complimentary pool tables, shuffle boards and Xbox Kinect games. The location also has a 3,000-square-foot meeting/event space, a rooftop terrace with fire pit and live music, a full-service restaurant and three bars.

“We have a handful of different outlets that appeal to all different types of demographics and skill levels,” Daniel said.

Topgolf is in the process of hiring 450 people for their Centennial location. Available positions range from servers and bartenders to kitchen, maintenance and guest services staff, plus many more.

“Topgolf puts its own flair on the hiring and training process,” said Deslyn Norris, Topgolf's director of human resources. “We take remarkable care in selecting our associates and equipping them with the information and tools they need to be successful. Of course, we make sure everyone has fun in the meantime.”

The $11 million project began in 2014 with the City of Centennial's negotiation of an incentive package, prior to Topgolf's acquisition of the property. The property was purchased in March 2014 by broker Sullivan Hayes after approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado in March 2014, said Allison Wittern, Centennial's public information manager.

“This property has a complicated history that includes a bankruptcy and myriad site constraints — topography, floodplain, and access, to name a few,” she said. “The property had been the subject of many development inquiries over the years but no developer was able to respond to these challenges until TopGolf came into play.”

Wittern said Topgolf's unique business model is exciting to have in Centennial and is going to bring in people from throughout the state.
