Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® opened the doors to its fourth Dallas/Ft. Worth and ninth Texas location. The new three level, 65,000-square-foot venue is the company’s 32nd location worldwide.
“We are very excited to officially become a part of the Fort Worth community,” said Topgolf Fort Worth Director of Operations Jeff Sugden. “We are very passionate about giving back and being a gathering place for local residents. I know this will be a place focused on bringing people together to create memories and have a great time with our guests.”
Through the premium experience of play, food and music, Topgolf is inspiring people of all ages and skill levels – even non-golfers – to come together for playful competition. Guests can enjoy point-scoring golf games using micro-chipped balls that instantly score themselves, showing players the accuracy and distance of their shots on a TV screen in their hitting bay. The venues also feature an outstanding chef-driven menu, top-shelf drinks, big screen TVs and music in climate-controlled hitting bays for all-seasons comfort. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, golf instruction and more.
Topgolf Fort Worth is located at 2201 E. 4th St. The venue will feature live music on Friday and Saturday nights through Sept. 3, along with other seasonal programs. For more information, visit www.topgolf.com, facebook.com/topgolffortworth or @Topgolf on Twitter and Instagram.
Topgolf has aligned itself with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This alliance aims to support those touched by cancer, educate Topgolf guests about sun safety habits to prevent skin cancer and fundraise for research and programs that help reduce cancer risks through a healthy lifestyle.
“Cancer touches nearly everyone, directly or indirectly, which is why we are proud to support MD Anderson’s mission to end cancer,” said Topgolf Entertainment Group Co-Chairman and CEO Erik Anderson. “Maintaining an active lifestyle can play a role in reducing risk factors for the disease. We are partnering with one of the world’s leading cancer research institutions to inspire healthy behaviors and, hopefully, save lives.”
To kick off the alliance in May during Skin Caner Awareness Month, Topgolf guests at venues across the U.S. will receive life-saving sun safety tips from MD Anderson experts to help prevent skin cancer.
During July, guests can join Topgolf in raising funds to end cancer. By making a minimum $5 donation, donors will receive a $10 off game play coupon, valid for use on a return visit to Topgolf. All funds raised through the Topgolf End Cancer Campaign will support programs and research in the Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship at MD Anderson, which aims to better understand the connection between a healthy lifestyle and cancer.
Approximately half of all cancer cases in the U.S. could be prevented by lifestyle changes that include sun safety, a healthy weight, healthy diet and physical activity. In addition to prevention efforts, MD Anderson is developing tomorrow’s cancer treatments today through the nation’s largest clinical research program, with more than 9,400 patients enrolled in approximately
1,200 clinical trials last year.
“Our new collaboration with Topgolf provides MD Anderson a valuable opportunity to extend cancer prevention and education messaging to new, younger audiences across the U. S.,” said Tom Buchholz, M.D., a physician-in-chief at MD Anderson. “As the next generation of cancer fighters, millennials are critical to helping us achieve our mission to eliminate cancer. By implementing healthy habits early in life , the risk of developing cancer later is drastically reduced.”
