Marana welcomes latest entertainment attraction


On Friday, December 15 a new business opens in the Town of Marana, and with it the addition of at least 350 jobs to the Marana area.

Topgolf Tucson-Marana is the latest entertainment attraction to open in the Town of Marana, and is expected to host over several hundred thousand visitors in its first year and generate over $215 million in revenues over the next 10 years.  As the first of its kind in Southern Arizona, it is an example of companies finding Marana a great place to do business.

“Topgolf will create 350 jobs and host over 300,000 visitors in its first year alone," said Marana Economic Development Director Curt Woody. "The $215 million in revenues within the first ten years and an economic impact that far exceeds this figure is a welcomed amenity that will add to Marana’s and the surrounding region’s economic health.”

As Marana continues to grow, businesses like Topgolf and Tucson Premium Outlets at Marana Center complemented by hospitality options like the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain and the upcoming Hampton Inn are exactly the types of modern amenities and attractions that the Town is trying to attract, with the Premium Outlets and the Ritz-Carlton attracting people from all over the region, as well as internationally.

“It’s is a multi-entertainment venue designed to attract the avid and non-golfer alike,” Woody said. 

Topgolf bills themselves as a golf entertainment complex, full-service bar, and event venue, but the 53,000-square foot, three-level facility with 72 bays for hitting golf balls into the 215-yard outfield is not your normal driving range.

Golf balls contain microchips to track accuracy and distance, while also awarding points for hitting a variety of targets in the outfield. There are seven different point-scoring games that anyone can enjoy. While the golf enthusiast will certainly enjoy Topgolf, anyone can have fun whether they drive like the pros or have never held a golf club .

There are also over 250 high-definition televisions, a full-service restaurant with a scratch kitchen making all the food fresh, and bars on each floor. There are also private event spaces, pool tables, shuffleboard, and more. 

The Marana location at 4050 W. Costco Pl, is the 38th Topgolf location worldwide and the third in the state of Arizona.
