Around 60 participants prepare for the 100-foot-long ribbon-cutting at the opening of Topgolf's new location in Vineyard on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022.

It may have been cold outside on Friday for the 100-foot-long ribbon-cutting for Topgolf in Vineyard, but the inside was warm and inviting.

Topgolf is the latest entertainment venue to open in Vineyard, with a plan to hire up to 400 employees in the area. A crowd of business and government leaders, along with interested members of the public, were on hand for the celebratory ribbon cutting.

“We are thrilled that Topgolf is officially open for business! They have already proven to be a wonderful addition to our community, including our sports and entertainment sectors,” said Curtis Blair, President and CEO of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. “The benefits for having Topgolf in the valley and a member of the Chamber extend well beyond entertainment. The several hundred new jobs created in the area, will give the local economy yet another boost to an already vibrant business community.”

The chamber of commerce helped with the arrangements for the Friday opening.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a golf club before, we’re pretty certain you’ll have fun at Topgolf since our whole experience is focused on cutting loose with friends and family,” Gen Gray, chief operating officer for Topgolf, said in a press release. “We’ve enjoyed great relationships with Utahns after our Salt Lake City venue opened, and we’re thrilled at the opportunity to bring more play to the state.”

Vineyard Mayor Julie Fullmer and Former Utah Gov. Gary Herbert speak at the Topgolf ribbon cutting in Vineyard on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022.

Players at Topgolf Vineyard will be welcomed by 72 climate-controlled hitting bays divided across the venue’s two levels. Each hitting bay is equipped with Topgolf’s Toptracer ball-tracking technology that allows players to see their ball’s speed, height, distance and more as they aim for on-field targets during point-scoring games.

Patrons of Topgolf Vineyard can also tryout the 12-hole miniature golf course, dining, programs and the outdoor patio and more.

“It’s been a pleasure working with X-Development, Topgolf, and the city to bring this incredible facility to Vineyard residents and into Utah Valley,” said Vineyard Mayor Julie Fullmer. “The early December opening is a fun holiday gift to our community, as this venue has been highly anticipated in the region.”

Fullmer noted that the facility will offer incredible job opportunities for people the area, with up to 400 new jobs being added.

“We’ve already begun to experience the company culture of Topgolf, where they value people and focus on hospitality, which is important to a community,” Fullmer said. “We are excited to share in the ‘unlimited power of play’ that Topgolf creates to drive connections and build talent.”

Fullmer specifically mentioned the high-end miniature golf addition, which she said will be incredible for friends, families, and business associates to enjoy in the heart of Utah Valley as they meander through the Yard in Vineyard.

Also on hand for the day’s celebration, Vineyard spokesperson Kathryn Newman noted, were representatives from the Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University Athletic Departments and the school’s golf coaches.

“They know this will be a great training venue for their golfers and for the future golfers in Utah Valley,” Newman said. She added that the venue will also be a fun spot for groups and families to enjoy the golfing experience throughout the entire year.

In addition to Topgolf, more casual food eateries and businesses will be coming to the Yard, enhancing the experience of its patrons. The Yard also includes the Larry Miller Megaplex Theaters next door to the new Topgolf facility.

Topgolf boasts 77 locations in the United States, with three more opening soon. The company’s Salt Lake City location, the only other in Utah, opened in May 2016.
