DALLAS, August 3, 2021 — Global sports and entertainment leader Topgolf Entertainment Group will introduce its technology-enabled entertainment experience to the greater Seattle area with a new, state-of-the-art venue. This venue, expected to open in 2022, held a groundbreaking ceremony on August 3 to kick off construction of what will be Topgolf’s first traditional multi-level entertainment venue to serve Washingtonians. Topgolf Renton-Seattle will be located off Logan Ave. near Boeing’s Renton Factory and The Landing Shopping mall.
Topgolf Renton-Seattle will feature Topgolf’s new skylit central atrium design. With comfortable seating, yard games, and a giant video wall, the skylit central atrium creates a hang-out spot and connects the fun of hitting bays with the action of our patio, bars and roof terraces.
“We’re thrilled to kick off the development of Topgolf Renton-Seattle and look forward to unveiling this state-of-the-art venue,” said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. “This exciting development will not only allow us to entertain the community, but also further enhance the south end of Lake Washington by serving as an anchor in Renton’s entertainment district.”
The new, three-level venue, which is expected to employ more than 500 Associates once open, will feature 102 outdoor hitting bays, plus a full-service restaurant and bar and event space for corporate and social events.
Guests can experience the unique technology-driven fun that communities have grown to know and love in an open-air and safe multi-level environment. The signature experience features point-scoring games in outdoor hitting bays, chef-driven menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round programming for all ages. Additionally, Topgolf will offer private event rooms for corporate meetings, celebrations and more.
“This is an exciting moment for the Renton community, and I look forward to the project’s groundbreaking and completion,” said Renton Mayor Armondo Pavone. “The addition of Topgolf to The Landing will serve as another source of entertainment for those who frequent the area and provide more job opportunities for Renton residents.”

As pioneers of the sports and entertainment industry, Topgolf’s track record of creativity and industry leadership has led to the growth of a unique company, which operates over 70 venues worldwide.
