The company’s newest location is its third Tennessee venue, joining existing ones in Chattanooga and Nashville, however, the new two-story venue architecture design is the first of its kind in Tennessee.
“The open-air, two-level venue features 72 outdoor hitting bays with all the comforts of inside, a full-service restaurant with chef-inspired menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round family-friendly programming for all ages,” Topgolf writes in a press release. “The venue also features an outdoor patio, rooftop terrace and private event space”
