Topgolf to debut new game technology at Orlando location this Friday
Topgolf will finally open its doors to the Orlando location on Friday, Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. This new three-level, 65,000-square-foot venue is the company’s 36th location worldwide and the first to open with Toptracer technology.
Toptracer, known from TV broadcasts of the Open Championship and Ryder Cup on Golf Channel and NBC, tracks the flight path of each golf ball hit and shows its path via video. Guests to the Orlando location will be able to see an instant replay of their hits on an HDTV screen in the hitting bay.
Guests will be able to enjoy scoring points in golf games using microchipped balls that score themselves, and show players their accuracy and distance in their shots on a TV screen. With Toptracer technology, players at the Orlando location can now receive even more feedback on their shots, including the ball’s speed, height and distance.
“The beauty of Topgolf is that you don’t have to be a golfer to have fun – but the Toptracer technology adds a fresh element of interest and interaction that we believe will inspire a whole new appreciation for the game,” said Andrew Macaulay, Chief Technology Officer for Topgolf Entertainment Group. “Playing at Topgolf Orlando will be like being a part of a video game come to life.”
The location also features a chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs and music in climate-controlled hitting bays, making the fun year-round.
“As one of the world’s top tourist destinations and golfing communities, Orlando is a flagship market that we are proud to invest in,” said Erik Anderson, Co-Chairman and CEO of Topgolf Entertainment Group. “The Orlando opening and debut of in-venue Toptracer technology is an exciting milestone for Topgolf. We look forward to offering this community and its visitors a unique destination for interactive entertainment.”
