Long-Awaited Topgolf Durham Opens Friday, April 12

2 April 2024

At long last, modern golf entertainment leader Topgolf announced today it's opening its Durham venue on Friday, April 12.

The Basics

  • Never been to a Topgolf venue? Think of it as a modern golf experience where anyone – including people who have never picked up a golf club and those who want to perfect their swing – can participate in the sport in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. You'll take aim at giant targets on the field while playing virtual courses or Topgolf's signature games like Angry Birds. And just so you know, Topgolf celebrates the bad shots just as much as the beautiful swings.
  • This will be North Carolina's third Topgolf venue, including two locations in Charlotte.
  • Topgolf Durham will be located at 4901 Topgolf Way, at the Page Road exit on Interstate 40 in south Durham.
  • Globally, this will be Topgolf's 99th outdoor venue when it opens on April 12 and 89th in the U.S.
  • The venue will employ roughly 500 Playmakers (aka employees) – think bay hosts, bartenders, ball picker upper people, etc.

It's Golf

  • Topgolf Durham will have 102 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays spanning three levels. Each bay has lounge-type furniture or high-top tables where groups can cheer – or heckle – the other Players.
  • The venue is equipped with Topgolf's Toptracer technology, which traces each golf ball's flight path, distance and other metrics.
  • Bonus: On Tuesdays, game play is half-off!
  • Players can even partake in lessons through Topgolf's Coach program, led by the venue's Director of Instruction.

It's Not Golf

  • Topgolf takes its "not golf" very seriously. What we mean: A full-service restaurant manned by executive chefs, a 28-foot video wall, more than 200 HDTVs, an outdoor patio, music and year-round family-friendly programming are just as much a part of the Topgolf experience.
  • Private event rooms and a rooftop terrace with fire pits also offer prime spots for team outings, family gatherings, meetings or really anything Players are looking to celebrate.

What They Said

  • Topgolf Chief Operating and People Officer Gen Gray: "We know you've been waiting for this opening, Durham, and trust me when I say everyone at Topgolf has been too! We're so excited to finally be able to welcome you to our signature Topgolf experience we're sure you won't get anywhere else."
  • Durham Mayor Leonardo Williams: "Not only am I excited about getting to play at Topgolf, I'm excited for our city as Topgolf's opening brings with it 500 good-paying jobs for our community. We expect people to visit Topgolf from other areas of the state, which benefits our local economy and is a testament to Durham's growing range of entertainment offerings."
