GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Topgolf is coming to Greensboro, according to the city council.
City council members met on Tuesday and said they have been working to get Topgolf in Greensboro since 2019.
The vote passed 9-0.
Topgolf will be eight acres in the Guilford College Road and Bridford Parkway intersection with hotels and other sources of entertainment in the area.
Greensboro City Council member Tammi Thurm says the development is happening in a spot that was teetering on being a “problem area,” and this is big for a location they have struggled with for the last few years.
Topgolf is a nationwide chain of golf driving range games where guests can swing the club and try to get their golfball to certain targets in “climate-controlled hitting bays.” According to the Topgolf website, the games use “micro-chipped golf balls and Toptracer technology (select venues) to keep track of every shot.” Games include Angry Birds (based on the mobile game), Jewel Jam (a tile-matching puzzle game), closest to the hole and more.
