SAN DIEGO — San Diego: the wait is over. The modern, golf entertainment company Topgolf has announced plans for two San Diego County locations.
Topgolf is beginning plans to bring its popular golf experience to Sorrento Valley and East Harbor Island, the company announced.
"We've wanted to bring the Topgolf venue experience to San Diego for a long time, and it's encouraging to see us making progress toward that goal," said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. "While still in the early stages, we're excited by the potential to bring even more play to the San Diego community."
The plans for Topgolf Sorrento Valley includes redeveloping the Caroll Canyon Golf Center and building a three-level venue equipped with Topgolf technology throughout 80+ bays, the company said.
The Port of San Diego Topgolf location is planned to be a part of the East Harbor Island redevelopment efforts, featuring a three-story venue and 100 hitting bays.
Topgolf combines technology-driven golf experiences with entertainment, food, music and handcrafted cocktails.
"Topgolf is growing exponentially and continues to bring modern golf to cities across the country and the globe," said Chip Brewer, President and CEO of Topgolf Callaway Brands, which is Topgolf's parent company headquartered in Carlsbad, California. "The San Diego area has been the proud home of Topgolf Callaway Brands for more than 40 years, and we're thrilled Topgolf is coming to the neighborhood."
The Port of San Diego said it could be several years until construction starts at the East Harbor Island location.
"The project Topgolf is proposing for East Harbor Island has many steps to go and will require various approvals by the Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners, including real estate negotiations, environmental review, drafting and issuing a Coastal Development Permit, construction schedule, etc.," said Brianne Mundy Page, the public information officer for the Port of San Diego.
