Construction set to begin on new golf facility in west midtown Atlanta

Posted: Updated:

Topgolf Inc. is hoping it becomes the Shangri-La for upscale golfers looking for a fun new environment to improve their skills. Construction crews will soon break ground on the company's newest driving range in Atlanta, this one located in West Midtown.

"I think it will be awesome for us over here," said Amber Moyers.

Moyers is the General Manager of the Corner Tavern. It's located just down the street from the Topgolf site.

"We are still industrialized on this side of the town and Midtown is still the new new, but everyone is starting to kind of find out about us over here and what West Midtown has to offer," Moyers said.

When it is completed, the new upscale facility will feature a three level driving range, golf lessons, games and a full service restaurant and bar. Company officials said they expect to serve 450,000 visitors the first year. Moyers said that can only help an area that is in the midst of creating its identity.

"With all the new condos going in and all the residents that are coming up, and all the new houses that are being built, everything is starting to get advertised a little more. They are just bringing them in and bringing them in," Moyers said

The increased traffic may not sit well with some people, but Moyers said it will only help the area.

"People are really trying to get this side of town brought up. Nobody really knows about it yet so this will be a great thing. More jobs, more people, more residential areas, it should be good," Moyers said.

Topgolf opened an Alpharetta location in early 2014. The West Midtown location is expected to open in early 2015.
