Global sports and entertainment leader Topgolf will bring its technology-enabled experience to Midtown St. Louis with a new venue, expected to open in late 2023. The venue, which will be the second to serve Greater St. Louis, will be located south of the Saint Louis University campus at the intersection of Chouteau Avenue and Compton Avenue, south of I-64.
Situated within view of the Gateway Arch, the future open-air, three-level venue will feature 102 outdoor hitting bays with all the comforts of inside, a full-service restaurant and bar with chef-inspired menu items and top-shelf drinks, music and year-round family-friendly programs. It’ll also be fully equipped with the company’s signature Toptracer technology, the most trusted ball-tracing technology in the golf industry that powers the experience at the venue and enables Players to enjoy games like Angry Birds and Jewel Jam. On top of that, Players will also be able to take advantage of an outdoor patio, rooftop terrace and private event space.
The land for the future venue, which is in the city’s 19th Ward, was acquired from Saint Louis University and will bring community and economic development benefits in the form of tax revenue and approximately 400 new jobs. Designed to inspire a lifelong love for golf, Topgolf will support the St. Louis community through donations, volunteering programs and charitable events, including the Youth Play It Forward initiative in which Topgolf invites high school golf teams and charities that support youth mentorship, leadership and empowerment to play at Topgolf for free during select times.
The new Topgolf is the latest project in the 400-acre development area guided by the St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment Corporation (STLMRC). Saint Louis University formed STLMRC in partnership with SSM Health five years ago. New entertainment, recreational and community facilities are among the priorities of this dynamic redevelopment effort.
This will be Topgolf’s second entertainment venue in the state of Missouri, as the company also operates a venue in Chesterfield, 30 minutes west of downtown St. Louis.
