The Charleston area will get the state’s third Topgolf location, set to open near the North Charleston Coliseum in late 2022, the company announced Monday.
Construction will begin early next year, according to a press release, near the intersection of Tanger Outlet Boulevard and International Boulevard in the new Uptown at Centre Pointe development.
Topgolf typically features a driving range-type setup familiar to many golfers, but with added video game-like features that appeal to golfers and non-golfers alike. The North Charleston location will have a two-levels and 72 bays. The location will employ 300 associates, the company said.
According to the National Golf Foundation, off-course golf activities at facilities like Topgolf accounted for nearly 33% of total golf participation in 2020, a share that has risen substantially over the past decade.
Development of the Uptown complex has been in the works for years, between Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard and will reportedly include filling some remaining wetlands that feed Filbin Creek.
