Topgolf Entertainment Group said Wednesday (May 4) it has “set plans in motion” to locate a venue in Little Rock, its second venue in Arkansas. Topgolf has a high-tech entertainment venue in Rogers.

The company reported:

“The multi-level venue, which would be located within the Little Rock city limits, would offer the brand’s signature experience where players can enjoy point-scoring golf games in an energetic and fun environment. Topgolf venues feature a chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs, flexible private event spaces and music in outdoor hitting bays.”

The company said the Little Rock venue will employ approximately 300 full-time and part-time workers.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Topgolf to the capital of Arkansas and planning to join this vibrant community,” said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. “As we look to expand the Topgolf experience in the state, Little Rock is the perfect place to do it.”

“It’s been a goal of mine to bring Topgolf to Little Rock since I first reached out to the company on Twitter in 2018,” said Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. “This popular golf and entertainment venue is a welcome addition to our community, and its selection of our city demonstrates that Little Rock is a great place to live, work and play. Topgolf will bring hundreds of jobs to Little Rock, and it joins a long list of economic development projects that have improved our quality of life and place over the last three years.”
