Topgolf forays into real golf with a 10-hole course adjoining its new venue in El Segundo, Calif.
Topgolf fans who want to leave their lofty links balconies with food and drink service and play a little actual golf can now do so at its new venue in El Segundo, Calif.
Topgolf partnered with golf course designer Mike Angus to refresh and reintroduce the Lakes at El Segundo Golf Course right alongside its new 102-hitting bay, standard location on the Pacific Coast Highway between Los Angeles and Long Beach.
The golf-gaming company promises that the 10-hole, par-3, 1,060- yard course is a fine beginner’s course that can be enjoyed by experienced golfers, as well. Rates, too, are reasonable, ranging from $17 to $25 on weekdays and $22 to $32 on weekends.
Topgolf’s gaming aspects are interwoven with the actual course, as players discover holes with quirky names that present unique challenges throughout. The 10th hole is equipped with Topgolf's Toptracer technology that allows players to trace their shots through the skies (or into the trees) like the pros.
Topgolf renovated the Lakes at El Segundo with new turf and grass, refurbished lakes, night-lighting, a built-in music system, and a brand-new Golf Shop offering food, beverages and golf equipment.
"This is a very exciting opening for Topgolf as the game of golf continues to grow and diversify both on and off the course,” Topgolf CEO Artie Starrs commented in a press release. "From the variety of experiences to the next-level technology features, our El Segundo location will bring the power of play to so many as we continue to shape the future of golf."
