TopGolf Breaks Ground on New Facility


TopGolf Inc., a Dallas-based company, broke ground on its latest entertainment venture in Albuquerque.

TopGolf will be located in the old water park lot, near Montano and I-25, which has been vacant since the park closed 14 years ago.

At its June 26, 2018 administrative meeting, the Bernalillo County Commission approved $1.75 million in Local Economic Development (LEDA) grants for Albuquerque Investors, LLC, doing business as TopGolf.

Under the terms of the LEDA grants, Top Golf will create at least 200 jobs with 132 of those being full-time employees with 100 percent of their benefits paid.

“This is a big win for our community,” says County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada. “Residents get jobs and entertainment, the state, county, and city realize tax revenue and TopGolf brings its business model to town and improves the quality of life.”

The $1.75 million LEDA grant package would be distributed as follows:

  • $250,000 - a $250,000 local LEDA grant will be made available to Top Golf after it breaks ground and starts construction. The $250,000 will come from funds generated through industrial revenue bonds. No general fund money is used for this purpose.
  • $1.5 million - the county will reimburse 50 percent of Top Golf’s paid gross receipt taxes until the reimbursement amount reaches $1.5 million.

The Top Golf facility is slated to have a driving range with 72 hitting bays, food and adult beverages.

Construction is expected to be completed in summer of 2020.
