topgolf, the golf entertainment company has announced a site for a location in Little Rock, but says it is not ready to announce a schedule.
The site is in the area we previously speculated about: 13.87 acres north of the intersection of I-430 and Col. Glenn Road, visible from the highway. It is in the Brodie Creek Development Village
Topgolf currently has a facility in Rogers. A company press release said the facility, which includes a digitized golf driving range, restaurant and bar, will employ around 300 people.
Topgolf announced in May that it would build in Little Rock, but did not provide any details. Mayor Frank Scott Jr. has made bringing Topgolf to Little Rock one of his development goals. For a time, his administration floated the idea of providing an area of the former War Memorial Park golf course for such development, but an outcry over the idea scuttled it.
My developer friends say they believe the land is on the easternmost part of this 50-acre parcel closest to I-430.
