Lafayette Gears Up for Topgolf’s Latest Venue in Ambassador Town Center

DALLAS, Nov. 30, 2023 – In a significant boost to Lafayette’s leisure and entertainment offerings, Topgolf, a leader in modern golf entertainment, has announced the opening of its Lafayette venue on December 15. This will mark the second Topgolf location in Louisiana, following Baton Rouge, with plans for a New Orleans venue by early 2025.

Situated approximately 15 minutes from downtown Lafayette, at 301 Meadow Farm Road, Topgolf Lafayette promises a unique golfing experience for both novices and seasoned players. The venue features 60 outdoor, climate-controlled hitting bays across two levels, providing a comfortable and engaging environment for all players.

Topgolf Lafayette is not just about golf. The venue takes pride in its ‘not golf’ aspects, including a full-service restaurant with executive chefs, a rooftop terrace with fire pits, over 200 HDTVs, and a variety of family-friendly programming throughout the year. These features, along with private event rooms and an outdoor area for games, make Topgolf a versatile location for team outings, family gatherings, or casual get-togethers.

For those interested in improving their golf skills, Topgolf Lafayette offers lessons through its Coach program, led by the venue’s Director of Instruction. Players can also enjoy the venue’s Toptracer technology, which tracks each golf ball’s flight and provides impressive metrics to share with friends.

Topgolf’s commitment to the community is evident in the venue’s potential for job creation and economic growth. The Lafayette location is set to employ around 200 Playmakers in various roles, contributing significantly to the local job market.

The opening of Topgolf Lafayette has garnered positive responses from local officials. Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory praised Topgolf for its investment in the community, highlighting the venue’s role in enhancing quality of life and economic growth. Mandi Mitchell, President and CEO of the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA), echoed these sentiments, emphasizing the importance of family recreation and entertainment in attracting families and professionals to the region.

Topgolf’s COO and People Officer Gen Gray expressed excitement about bringing more play to Louisiana and extended an open invitation to the Lafayette community to experience the fun and relaxation that Topgolf offers – no golf experience necessary.
