An internationally known golf entertainment company is expected to begin construction on a new outlet in Thornton, Colorado sometime next year.
The Dallas-based Topgolf, which has nearly 50 such facilities in the U.S. and Great Britain, opened its first Colorado site in the city of Centennial in 2015.
The Thornton project, which has won the approval of the Thornton City Council, comes after an earlier Topgolf proposal in that city that sparked opposition from nearby neighbors.
The new site, on some 12.2 acres near the northeast corner of Interstate 25 and 160th Avenue, is, according to City of Thornton documents, “not located in proximity to any existing residential uses.”
The document adds that the traditional Topgolf “designs its prototypes to be compatible with surrounding development.”
The Thornton project will see the construction of a 65,000 square foot structure with restaurant and special event space, as well as a rooftop terrace. Also included in the project will be an indoor/outdoor golfing range, and 102 covered driving bays.
Topgolf has recently been on an expansion boom, building or planning new facilities just this last year alone in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, and Texas.
