WASHINGTON — Dallas-based high-tech driving range, bar and restaurant chain Topgolf broke ground Friday morning on its newest Washington area location at National Harbor.
The Topgolf location, at 6400 Oxon Hill Road, is expected to open next year.
It will create about 500 new jobs in Prince George’s County, the company said.
Topgolf has two other locations in the region.
Its Alexandria location on South Van Dorn Street, which opened in 2005, was its first location in the U.S. It more recently opened a larger Topgolf facility in Ashburn. Another is planned for Germantown on Century Boulevard late this year.
It will also eventually open a Baltimore location, on Stockholm Street near M&T Bank Stadium.
Topgolf has 42 locations and says nearly half of its guests describe themselves as “nongolfers.”
