TopGolf to open at National Harbor in 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® today announced the company’s fourth greater D.C. area venue in Oxon Hill, Md. The National Harbor venue is slated to open by 2019 along the beltway and Potomac River.

“We have a very rich history here in the greater D.C. area,” said Topgolf COO Craig Kessler. “Topgolf’s first location in the U.S. was built in Alexandria, Va., which has paved the way for our expansion nationwide. We are excited to continue that growth in this key market. We look forward to becoming an active community partner in National Harbor and a social destination for people to get together.” Through the premium experience of play, food and music, Topgolf is inspiring people of all ages and skill levels – even non-golfers – to come together for playful competition. Guests can enjoy point-scoring golf games using microchipped balls that instantly score themselves, showing players the accuracy and distance of their shots on a TV screen in their hitting bay. The venues also feature an outstanding chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs and music in climate-controlled hitting bays for all-seasons comfort. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, golf instruction and more.

“Topgolf brings yet another best-in-class attraction to National Harbor and adds to the impressive lineup of shopping, dining, and entertainment options that have made National Harbor a must-visit destination during the past 10 years,” said Kent Digby, executive vice president, asset management and operations for National Harbor. “Not only will Topgolf attract guests from throughout the region, but it will also have tremendous appeal to tourists and convention attendees as well.”

Topgolf operates 41 venues around the world, attracting 13 million visitors annually. With two venues currently in the D.C. area, Alexandria and Loudoun County, Va., the company is also planning to open a location in Germantown, Md. next year. Topgolf estimates its economic output in National Harbor will exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year period. The company will also create 500 full- and part-time jobs. The venue will be situated on more than 15 acres near Felker Avenue.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
