Global sports and entertainment leader Topgolf Entertainment Group expects to introduce its technology-enabled entertainment experience to the greater Los Angeles area with state-of-the-art venues in Ontario and El Segundo. These two highly anticipated venues will be the first locations to serve the Southern California area and will bring the total number of venues in California to four, joining Topgolf Roseville outside of Sacramento and Topgolf San Jose, which is expected to open in 2021.
The Ontario and El Segundo locations will bring the unique Topgolf experience communities have grown to know and love in an open-air and safe multi-level environment. The greater Los Angeles area will soon experience Topgolf’s tech-driven fun with point-scoring games in the venues’ signature hitting bays, seasonal chef-driven menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round programming for all ages in a climate-controlled outdoor space. Additionally, Topgolf will offer private event rooms for corporate meetings, celebrations and more.
Topgolf Ontario will be nestled on nearly 14 acres of undeveloped, county-owned land in San Bernardino County adjacent to Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park. The new, three-level venue, which is expected to employ more than 400 Associates once open, will feature 102 hitting bays, plus a full-service restaurant and bar and event space for corporate and social events. Topgolf also plans to add a unique mini-golf experience after the initial venue opening for Guests of all ages to enjoy.
Topgolf El Segundo will be located along the prominent Pacific Coast Highway as part of The Lakes at El Segundo 9-hole municipal golf course. Topgolf will assume operations of the 9-hole course as part of the venue’s experience. The venue, also expected to employ nearly 400 people, will create a first-of-its-kind experience by offering both the signature Topgolf fun and a traditional green grass golf course. As part of the experience, Topgolf plans to renovate the golf course with night-lighting and enhance the pro shop and clubhouse.
Both locations are slated to begin development in February and are expected to open in early 2022.
“For quite some time, we have been hearing the calls for Topgolf to come to Southern California and we are thrilled to be answering this call with not one, but two Topgolf venue experiences,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. “Topgolf Ontario and Topgolf El Segundo are more than entertainment venues, they are a commitment to the people of the Inland Empire and Los Angeles County to contribute to the tremendous momentum of the region with energy and fun.”
As one of the world’s fastest-growing sports and entertainment brands, Topgolf is credited with making the game of golf more inclusive and accessible through its variety of technology-driven experiences. The experience, built on a foundation of fun, community and inclusivity, has created a movement across the globe as the company makes its mark as a leader in the sports and entertainment industry.
