Topgolf in Ashburn right by One Loudoun opens Sept. 3. Here's a quick rundown of what perspective players can expect.

The view? A 65,000-square-foot facility and three levels of tech-driven, golf-like play.

“Golf-like” because it's not traditional golf. Guests play at hitting bays on 240-yard outfields with dartboard-like targets on the ground. The closer to the center of the target the ball lands and the further the ball flies, the more points are received. Unlike traditional golf scoring, the more points the better.

Distances and points are recorded through a microchip in the Topgolf balls.

The facility, built by ARCO/Murray National Construction Co. Inc., holds a restaurant, three bars, more than 250 high-definition flat-screen TV's, a rooftop terrace with fire pits and 3,000 square feet for private event space.

The superfluity of luxury lends itself to one fact: it's not just about golf.

It's about being a golf entertainment venue where guests from different skill-levels can “hang out” and compete with each other.

The Loudoun Topgolf, the franchise's second Virginia facility, hired 450 locals, according to a release. The company estimates the Ashburn location will attract 450,000 visitors in its first year and generate $264.5 million in revenue over 10 years.

Starting at 9 a.m. Thursday, the newly opened Topgolf location will give up to six players per bay access for rates varying between $25 to $45 per hour, depending on the time slot.

Guests can access lifetime or junior passes as well.
