A 65,000 sq. foot TopGolf facility planned for Loudoun

TopGolf, a Dallas, Texas-based golf entertainment complex, filed a site plan application Feb. 11 to build a 65,000-square-foot complex in Loudoun County.

Initial plans are to build the facility at the intersection of Loudoun County Parkway and Route 7, across the street from One Loudoun, according to Zach Shor, the director of real estate for TopGolf.

According to Shor, the facility would be "98 percent" similar to current facilities in Houston and Austin.

The amenities in Houston and Austin include: three levels of tees with 102 hitting bays; a full-service restaurant and bars; a rooftop terrace with fire pit and cabanas; more than 230 HD TVs and nearly 3,000 square feet of private event space.

"We love the demographics of Loudoun. Love the population,” Shor said. “We think the D.C. Metro area could be huge for us."

Shor said the company loves the median demographic—young professionals—and the median income of the county.

Shor believes an asset such as a golf course could be a boon for future office development nearby.

The TopGolf franchise started in west Houston and, according to Shor, was "much more mass market than we thought we were."

He said the facility attracts every kind of consumer.

"Older folks come in for breakfast and hitting,;lunch is business folks; afternoon, middle and high school golf teams; and dinner and after work, there are professionals," Shor said.

Plans are in place for TopGolf to break ground at the beginning of the summer.

A nine-month construction time frame is anticipated, with completion in early 2nd quarter 2015.

mmmm neon lighting….didn’t that do in the building on 28?  they better check with the signage rules for the county.  and yes…route 7 will be a mess.


You know what, Spark? Your world, where the only good bowling alley is one that is filled with smoke and smells of stale beer, will be extinct soon, and with good cause. Loudoun deserves upscale entertainment for families and people with the income to frequent these places. I hope we don’t see you at the “foo-foo” places, as you termed them. Have fun with your life crapping on the new realities of the community surrounding you.


I think it’s a great idea. Only thing missing in Loudoun is an outdoor venue to have summer concerts, like they use to at Belmont CC.


Indoor mini-golf…Will it be as affordable as the foo-foo bowling alley at Wegmans ?


Loudoun Hounds!?! Seriously how long has Farren delayed the Hounds? It’s a complete joke. Is VIP and Farren and Company shooting for a 2015 date, because they’ve missed the 2012, 2013 and now 2014.


Yeh- cant wait for the opening day of the Hounds stadium in 2017….. or maybe 2020?

Maybe they can get the non-existant Hounds to play in the dirt this season?


It looks like One Loudoun is going to become the entertainment mecca for the county.  TopGolf, Loudoun Hounds, and The Alamo to start the party. Now the question is what will traffic along RT.7 be like.
