News Release, PRNewswire
WASHINGTON, June 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® opens the doors to its latest Washington, D.C.-area location at 9 a.m. Friday near National Harbor. The new, three-level, 65,000-square-foot venue is the company’s 55th location worldwide.
“As Topgolf continues to expand throughout the country, we are thrilled to strengthen our presence in the nation’s capital as we officially open Topgolf National Harbor this week,” said Topgolf Chief Operations Officer Craig Kessler. “This exciting new venue allows us to continue connecting with the local community and creating moments that matter with Guests while showcasing some of Topgolf’s innovations, including Toptracer, which is the same technology seen on TV that tracks the flight path of the golf ball.”
With a worldwide fan base of nearly 100 million, Topgolf connects people in meaningful ways through its special blend of technology, entertainment, food and beverage, and the inherent good that can be accomplished when people from all walks of life come together. Guests – including golfers and non-golfers alike – can enjoy point-scoring games using microchipped balls that instantly show performance data, including accuracy and distance, on a TV screen in the bay. Topgolf venues feature a chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs, flexible private event spaces and music in climate-controlled hitting bays. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, lessons and much more.
The new Topgolf venue is located at 6400 Clipper Way in Oxon Hill, Md. More than 500 full- and part-time associates have been hired in advance of the opening. Along with enjoying the new venue in National Harbor, guests in the surrounding communities can visit venues in both Alexandria and Loudoun County.
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 [email protected]
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
