Interactive virtual Topgolf experience to open at Fort Benning and Fort Bragg
DALLAS – Nov. 11, 2019 – Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment community, is proud to continue its support of the U.S. Military community with new service member and veteran initiatives including Topgolf Swing Suite installations at two of the largest military bases in the country, charitable contributions to veteran organizations, and discounts for veterans, active-duty military, police, fire and EMS personnel.
“At Topgolf, we proudly support our nation’s veterans and want to celebrate their service not only on Veteran’s Day, but also all year long with our Heroes discount,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. “Additionally, with our latest Swing Suite partners at Fort Benning and Fort Bragg, our hope is to provide the backdrop for active military to enjoy a one-of-a-kind, virtual Topgolf experience with their loved ones and others in their military communities."
Topgolf Swing Suite at Fort Benning and Fort Bragg
Two of the country’s largest military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Bragg – will be home to the latest installations of Topgolf Swing Suite, an interactive, virtual Topgolf experience that entertains visitors of all ages and skill levels, both non-golfers and golfers alike.
Located in the Main Post Recreation Center at Fort Benning, the now-open Topgolf Swing Suite features two simulator bays and a variety of virtual games – including the popular Topgolf target game, Zombie Dodgeball, Hockey Shots, Baseball Pitching, Carnival Classic and more – paired with comfortable lounge seating, HDTVs and food and beverage service. The space is currently available for hourly rentals and will be available for social gatherings, parties, team building events, meetings and more in the near future.
Plans for the Fort Bragg Topgolf Swing Suite are underway, and will feature two bays located inside one of the post’s sports bars, providing an unmatched experience through technology, entertainment and food and beverage.*
Topgolf offers its Heroes Discount (presented by SERVPRO©) to celebrate active duty military and veterans every day with a 20% discount on all monthly memberships and 10% off Topgolf game play. This discount is also available for active fire, police and EMS personnel. More than 370,000 Heroes have used this discount in 2019 alone.
While the Heroes Discount is available every day, all dedicated American heroes who protect this country, neighborhoods, homes and families are encouraged to celebrate Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11 at their local Topgolf venue.
With the help of Bunkers in Baghdad, Topgolf has increased its donations of recycled golf equipment to military troops serving overseas to enjoy during their leisure time. Throughout the last four years, Topgolf has provided nearly half a million golf balls, more than 20,000 golf clubs and 1,900 yards of turf.
In addition, Topgolf is continuing its support of Folds of Honor, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States armed forces.
