The Triangle's long-awaited Topgolf will open on Friday, April 12, the company said in a release.

Why it matters: Topgolf is a popular entertainment destination nationwide. Its Durham location has been years in the making.

  • Construction began on the site at 4901 Page Road in 2021, but its completion was delayed.

Between the lines: TopGolf earlier this year was hiring for 500 positions ahead of the opening.

  • That's according to a post from the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce's vice president of economic development to LinkedIn.

Background: Dallas-based Topgolf is known for creating an entertaining driving range experience with simulators plus food and drinks.

  • Tom Dundon, the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes, was a large investor in the company.
  • Topgolf's Durham location is part of a larger planned entertainment development, which will also include Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, The Triangle Business Journal reported.
