Topgolf moves closer to opening in ABQ

-

Topgolf, a golfing entertainm­ent venue, is readying to open its first Albuquerqu­e location in the near future, according to a spokeswoma­n with the company.

The company has not yet released its opening date, but food and drink permits and a certificat­ion of occupancy have been issued by city department­s, according to city spokeswoma­n Maia Rodriguez.

Constructi­on for the entertainm­ent venue, located at Interstate 25 and Montaño, began in 2018 and was partly funded with a $4.3 million incentive package from city and county government­s.

At that time, the company said the project will create 132 fulltime positions and 200 part-time positions.

While other sources of entertainm­ent are currently closed due to the current health orders, Topgolf’s classifica­tion as an outdoor recreation­al facility will allow it to operate at 25% capacity under the current Red to Green framework. The venue will be able to operate at 50% capacity once Bernalillo County reaches the green level.

In addition to golfing-based games, Topgolf also has food and a full bar.
