A New Era for Golf in Massachusetts
Golf aficionados in Massachusetts, rejoice! Topgolf, a leader in modern golf entertainment, is launching its first venue in the state. Situated in Canton at 777 Dedham St., about 20 miles from downtown Boston, this marks Topgolf’s 84th outdoor venue in the United States and 94th worldwide.
Behind the Game: What Makes Topgolf Unique
What sets Topgolf apart from traditional golf venues is its fusion of high-tech golfing, a relaxed atmosphere, and an array of entertainment options. It’s not just about nailing the perfect shot; it’s about enjoying the experience. Players can take aim at oversized targets while playing virtual courses or indulging in signature games like Angry Birds. The venue employs Toptracer technology that tracks the flight path and distance of each ball, adding a layer of excitement and competition.
Staff and Amenities: The Complete Package
The new venue will employ approximately 400 ‘Playmakers,’ the term Topgolf uses for its diverse range of employees, including bay hosts and bartenders. With 90 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays spread across three levels, each bay provides lounge-like furniture and high-top tables. But it’s not all about golf. A full-service restaurant, a 28-foot video wall, and over 200 HDTVs make the venue an all-around entertainment hub. Bonus: Tuesdays feature half-off game play.
The Community Impact: What Officials Say
Opening this venue is a significant milestone, not just for Topgolf but also for the local community. Gen Gray, Topgolf Chief Operating Officer, expressed immense excitement about introducing their unique style of play to the Boston area. On the local front, John J. Connolly, Town of Canton’s Vice Chair, sees this venue as a substantial economic benefit, creating several hundred jobs.
