Louisiana’s second Topgolf venue will be located in the Ambassador Town Center approximately 15 minutes from downtown Lafayette
DALLAS, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Modern golf entertainment leader Topgolf announced today it will open its Lafayette venue on Friday, Dec. 15.
- 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.
- Topgolf Lafayette will be in the Ambassador Town Center approximately 15 minutes from downtown Lafayette at 301 Meadow Farm Road.
- This will be Louisiana’s second Topgolf venue in addition to Baton Rouge. Topgolf also has plans to open a venue in New Orleans by early 2025.
- Globally, this will be Topgolf’s 97th outdoor venue when it opens on Dec. 15 and 87th in the U.S.
- The venue will employ roughly 200 Playmakers (aka Associates) – think bay hosts, bartenders, ball picker upper people, etc.
- Topgolf Lafayette will have 60 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays spanning two 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 cool metrics to impress your friends.
- 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, rooftop terrace with fire pits, more than 200 HDTVs, music and year-round family-friendly programming are just as much a part of the Topgolf experience.
- Private event rooms and an outdoor area with backyard games also offer the prime spot 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 can’t wait to bring more play to Louisiana! Consider this an open invitation to the Lafayette community to come out, have fun and just let loose – no golf experience needed to have a great time!”
- Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory: “Topgolf’s upcoming opening is an investment in our community that will enhance quality of life while also creating new jobs and fostering economic growth for Lafayette. It’s a fantastic addition to our city’s entertainment options and a great asset that will draw in visitors from surrounding cities.”
- President and CEO of the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA) Mandi Mitchell: “We are thrilled to have Topgolf join our community to further enhance the quality of life in Lafayette Parish and Acadiana. Family recreation and entertainment play a large role in retaining and attracting families and young professionals in the region, and LEDA is committed to expanding the available options for enjoyment and employment in Lafayette Parish. Golf is nearly a year-round activity in Lafayette and the opening of Topgolf will only serve to increase the love of the game in our community.”
