Share some unique facts and business history? What makes your business stand out?
Topgolf began on a driving range, when two brothers were practicing their swings in 2000. As boredom took hold, they started to brainstorm about ways they could liven up their practice to make the experience more fun while still working on their skills, and Topgolf was born.
Flash forward to 2015, and Topgolf has evolved to become the best-in-class entertainment venue, complete with dynamic event spaces and a food and drink menu that puts any sports bar to shame. With golf pros strolling the tee line, offering tips and climate-controlled hitting bays, Topgolf is flat-out fun at any age or skill level, all year round. Topgolf Virginia Beach is the 24th location in the world, and number 21 in the United States. If you haven’t experienced it yet, come check it out. Let’s Play!
What products or services do you offer companies or individuals?
Anyone can play Topgolf from 5-95. How does it work? Players hit micro-chipped golf balls onto our giant field of targets to earn points. While you play, our bay hosts are around to help out with the game, and bring you food and drinks while you play!
In addition to the game of Topgolf and our full bars and restaurant, we also have event space that is perfect for any corporate event, social, birthday or bachelor party.
What are the greatest obstacles and/or challenges that your business has faced? How have you and your business overcome them?
We are thrilled to open our doors in Virginia Beach, and we are working now on letting people know we are open! We are excited to face the challenge of providing the best times of people’s lives at Topgolf each and every day when they walk in to Topgolf Virginia Beach.
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
Our biggest accomplishment, so far, has been the ability to create fun in the Virginia Beach community. We are proud of our commitment to the Virginia Beach community. Whether it’s a sponsorship of an event, or giving our time to volunteer, we love being involved. Before we opened our doors, our team gathered to write Christmas cards with words of encouragement to cancer survivors in support of Relay for Life. We are also extremely of the way we live out our Topgolf core values, and treat our associates and guests with respect.
