Dallas-based Topgolf is nearing completion of its new venue in Rogers, and the company has named Brad Darr director of operations.

Though the company has not officially announced any other members of the management team in Rogers, a few of the new employees have confirmed their new jobs.

Amy Crain Gober, most recently the executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Arkansas, has been hired as marketing manager. Gober also previously had a community development role with the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce. She is a former Miss Arkansas (2013).

Christy Marks is the director of sales. Marks has worked in corporate sales and marketing for a number of hotels in Northwest Arkansas and the Fort Smith metro for the past 15 years.

Construction at the Topgolf site is entering its final phase. It’s situated on roughly 11 acres south of the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP), just off Interstate 49 in Rogers’ Pinnacle Hills area.

No official open date has been announced yet by the company. The Rogers location is the first in Arkansas for Topgolf, and the company says it will hire roughly 350 full- and part-time workers.

Employees for the 55,000-square-foot venue will receive a variety of benefits including free game play, food and beverage discounts, medical, vision, and dental insurance, and a 401(k) retirement savings program. Available positions include servers, bartenders, guest services staff and more. Interviews started Feb. 1, and applicants are asked to register in advance.

Topgolf’s most recent opening was Jan. 17 in Germantown, Md., marking the 58th Topgolf venue in the world and 54th venue in the U.S. The company’s next scheduled openings are in Rogers and Omaha, Neb., later this spring.
