TOPGOLF MEGACITY EXCITES THAILAND WITH ALL-IN-ONE PLAY, FOOD AND FUN
Biggest sports and entertainment launch of the year
BANGKOK, THAILAND – March 10, 2022 – Topgolf Thailand is ready to excite Thailand with Topgolf Megacity: an All-in-One destination for play, food and fun. Bangkok’s newest sports and entertainment complex is set to open within the third quarter of 2022, serving more than half a million Guests annually and creating 400 jobs. The venue is a first of its kind in Southeast Asia.
The company today revealed details of the new venue at an exclusive pre-opening tour of Topgolf Megacity.
The Topgolf experience
Topgolf serves more than 30 million Guests per year in over 70 venues worldwide, in the USA, UK, Dubai (UAE), Mexico, Australia and Germany. Topgolf Megacity will be the first Topgolf entertainment complex in Southeast Asia. The venue offers 7,000 sqm of Guest-accessible area on a 47,000 sqm (29 rais) land, with the capacity to serve more than 1,200 Guests at any time.
Speaking at the press event, Andrew Nathan, Managing Director, Topgolf Southeast Asia, said: “Topgolf is fun for all people and all occasions, whether it’s socializing, teambuilding, celebrating, watching sports, improving your swing, enjoying family time or doing business. Topgolf is already a loved sports and entertainment brand in the USA and beyond, and we’re confident Topgolf will be a hit in Thailand. Today marks an important step in our expansion across Southeast Asia.”
Topgolf Megacity is a community-focused, family-friendly venue. The complex features 102 golf hitting bays, including four double VIP bays. Each bay has comfortable sofas, with high-quality Thai and international food delivered by friendly Topgolf Team Members.
Players can score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on the 205-yard outfield. Innovative Toptracer ball-tracing technology and 300 HDTV screens at the hitting bays open a world of gameplay. Using real golf clubs, the closer players get their ball to the center or ‘bullseye’ and the further the distance, the more points they earn.
Guests can choose from a wide selection of games to add fun to the experience, including a real-life Angry Birds game, Jewel Jam or virtual courses. This makes Topgolf the ideal destination for people of all ages and all skill levels.
Andrew added: “Bangkok is an ideal first location for Topgolf in Southeast Asia. Thai people are at the forefront of entertainment; they’re social and love to do things together. Bangkok also offers some of the world’s best retail and entertainment options and is a regional and global destination for leisure.”
All-in-one sports and entertainment complex
Beyond gameplay at the bays, Topgolf Megacity will feature Bangkok’s best sports bar and world-first Topgolf rooftop bar. Other outlets include a family-friendly café, an outdoor restaurant serving Thai classics, and a wine and whiskey lounge.
The venue can be transformed into a multipurpose event space, with private function rooms, hitting bays, outdoor lawn and bars and restaurants at Guest’s disposal. This makes Topgolf Megacity the perfect place for events of any size; from birthday celebrations to teambuilding events and company outings.
A fully-equipped Golf Academy will cater to aspiring individuals, families and advanced golf players. Furthermore, Topgolf Megacity features the best putting practice and minigolf course in town. The challenging 18 putting holes will appeal to golfers as well as social seekers and families.
“It’s safe to say that the opening of Topgolf Megacity will be the biggest entertainment launch of the year in Thailand,” added Tim Boda, Head of Operations, Topgolf Thailand. He highlighted that Topgolf Megacity aims to create unforgettable shared experiences: “Topgolf Megacity is designed to be a one-stop shop for a whole lot of fun. We offer a special chef-created menu, hand-crafted cocktails, event spaces, music and more. We want everyone to know that you don’t have to be a golfer to have fun at Topgolf – we have something to entertain everyone.”
At the heart of Megacity
Topgolf Megacity is easily accessible for people in Greater Bangkok and beyond. It is located right next to Megabangna shopping center, which caters annually to 42 million customers from nearby housing developments, offices, and schools. The venue is connected to major highways, 20 minutes from Suvarnabhumi airport and has ample free parking on-site.
Palinee Kongchansiri, President of SF Development Co., Ltd., which operates Megabangna and Megacity, is confident that Topgolf is certain to create excitement: “Having Topgolf as our partner helps strengthen and differentiate Megabangna and Megacity from other shopping centers. In line with Megacity’s concept “YOUR EVERYDAY MEETING PLACE”, Topgolf is the first sport entertainment project launched in Asia that will draw customers targeting various groups of customers from the city and surrounding provinces.”
