Las Vegas will be adding golf to its laundry list of entertainment options in the Spring of 2016 when TopGolf opens on the Vegas strip.
The rumors were confirmed on Wednesday with a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony at the site. According to the website, TopGolf Las Vegas will be the company’s largest undertaking to date, and will be going in on the Strip off Koval Lane, right next to the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
Despite construction being in it’s infancy, people are still very excited. TopGolf Las Vegas tweeted a picture of the first tee shots stuck on the property, kicking off the project:

“TopGolf Las Vegas is unlike anything we have ever endeavored to build,” according to the location’s website. “After three years of planning, TopGolf and MGM Grand are bringing the boldest new concept in sports entertainment to the entertainment capital of the world.
“This gleaming flagship location will host millions of TopGolf fans when they come to Las Vegas, bring our exciting new concept to MGM’s global clientele, and introduce the millions of other visitors to TopGolf who are attracted to Las Vegas every year in search of the latest innovations in entertainment and fun.”
TopGolf Las Vegas will feature 102 hitting bays over four levels, each capable of hosting six players at once and a 215-yard range. If swinging the sticks isn’t a high priority during your visit, there will be a stage for live musical performances, VIP areas featuring cabanas and water features, full-service restaurant and bars and incredible views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Things like gambling, business hours and age restrictions are yet to be set, but more information will be available on the company’s website as construction continues. All of this being said, the company admits that pricing is also up in the air at the moment.
“The business model in Las Vegas is vastly different from our other locations, so pricing will need to be modified,” the site says. “There will also be many new offerings, including new menu options, event packages, VIP areas that will be available for reservation and more.”
