Thanks to the crowds that Gila River Arena and University of Phoenix Stadium attract, Glendale will be the home to Arizona’s fourth Topgolf facility in 2018.

“Based on the numbers seen coming into the Scottsdale and Gilbert locations, it proved we could support another location in the Phoenix area,” said Morgan Wallace, Topgolf’s senior communications specialist. A Tucson location is opening this fall.

“Glendale is growing quickly, too. It’s a prime spot we’re going to have across from the stadium. That location just made sense for us.”

Topgolf Glendale will be located along the northwest corner of the Loop 101 and Bethany Home Road. The 13.1-acre property was purchased from the city of Glendale. Wallace added that the accessibility to the Loop 101 was ideal. Like the Scottsdale and Gilbert locations, Topgolf in Glendale will be very visible, with its high netting.

Open year-round, the three-level Glendale location will include up to 3,000 square feet of private event space and climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at a time. Officials estimate that Topgolf Glendale will serve approximately 450,000 visitors in its first year.

The move of Topgolf into Glendale will create 500 full- and part-time jobs. Its economic output in Glendale is expected to exceed $264.5 million over a 10-year period, according to a third-party audit.
