TopGolf teeing off in Hillsboro

HILLSBORO, Ore. — Golf entertainment center Topgolf is opening its first Oregon location in Hillsboro. Construction on the 65,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to create 450 full- and part-time jobs, has already begun and the venue is expected to open to the public in late spring, 2016. Topgolf is the only entertainment center of its kind, offering competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track players’ shots. Those who just want to relax can enjoy the upscale, laid-back ambiance that boasts more than 230 high-definition flat-screen TVs and an extensive food and beverage menu. “Hillsboro is a best-in-class, business-friendly city that allows Topgolf to tap into the Portland market,” said Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Zach Shor. “The city offers a strong daytime population and office presence, fantastic demographics, and an entertainment draw with the Hillsboro Hops. We are excited to bring the community another option for recreation.” The new three-level location will include up to 3,000 square feet of private event space and 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time. Shor estimates that Topgolf Hillsboro will serve approximately 450,000 visitors in its first year of operation. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as “non-golfers.” Photo courtesy of TopGolf Source: PRWeb
