Which would you prefer – Topgolf or BigShots Golf?
Topgolf and BigShots Golf have announced plans to bring their names (and games) to Albuquerque boosting our golf entertainment options and the local economy.
While the popularity of traditional golf has been declining for the last decade, the hybridization of sport and technology in a climate-controlled entertainment venue may be a winning combination for Albuquerque.
Topgolf’s three-story venue on 14.4 acres will be located at the southwest corner of Montano and I-25, breathing life back into the long-vacant Beach water park site. Pending City approvals, TopGolf is expecting to be open for business in spring 2019 creating an estimated 325 jobs. The anticipated amenities will include full service restaurant and bars, rooftop terrace with fire pit, free Wi-Fi, private event spaces and meeting rooms, and hundreds of HDTVs.
BigShots Golf’s proposed 71,000 square foot building on 20 acres will be east of our beloved Balloon Fiesta Park along the North I-25 corridor. The $17-$20 million dollar project is expected to generate about 350 – 400 jobs. Each Tee Box can seat up to 6 people and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, music, and 2 TVs (one for the game and one for the guests’ preferred channel). Food and drinks can be ordered from the Tee Box and enjoyed while you play.
Topgolf’s central location and 72 hitting bays would make lunch breaks at Q Realty a lot more fun!
