Topgolf to Open First Massachusetts Location in Canton on November 3
After much anticipation, Topgolf, the popular golf entertainment venue, has announced that it will be opening its first location in Massachusetts on November 3. The three-level venue, located on Dedham Street near Interstate 95 in Canton, will feature 90 climate-controlled hitting bays and is built on the site of the former Cumberland Farms manufacturing and distribution facility.
Topgolf is known for its unique blend of golf and entertainment, offering visitors a range of amenities including food, drinks, 200 televisions, music, private rooms, and year-round programming. The new venue is expected to create approximately 400 jobs, providing a significant boost to the local economy.
This will be the 94th Topgolf location worldwide, and the company is excited to introduce its style of play to the Boston area. “Opening our first venue in Massachusetts is a huge milestone for us, and we can’t wait to see it come to life,” said Topgolf Chief Operating Officer Gen Gray. The announcement has generated a lot of excitement within the Topgolf family, and they are looking forward to bringing their unique brand of entertainment to the Boston community.
However, locals have expressed concerns about the impact of the new venue on traffic congestion on Dedham Street. The road and bridge construction in the area have been ongoing for years, leading to heavy backups that extend into residential Canton neighborhoods. The project includes widening the street, adding sidewalks, and reconstructing bridges over rail tracks, the Neponset River, and Interstate 95. Despite these concerns, Topgolf remains optimistic about the success of their new location.
Topgolf has previously set up temporary events at Fenway Park, which sold out, demonstrating the popularity of their concept in the Boston area. With the opening of their permanent venue in Canton, Topgolf hopes to provide a unique and enjoyable golfing experience for locals and visitors alike.
If you’re a golf enthusiast or looking for a fun and entertaining activity for friends and family, mark your calendars for November 3 and head to Canton to experience Topgolf’s latest addition. With its state-of-the-art facilities and diverse offerings, Topgolf promises to be a one-of-a-kind destination for golf lovers in Massachusetts.
