SPRINGFIELD, MA (March 6, 2018) – Topgolf Swing Suite will deliver a fun, new social experience to MGM Springfield when the resort opens on August 24, 2018.
Becoming the first in the region available to the general public, the Topgolf Swing Suite will feature three high-tech simulators within a 2,800-square-foot suite and will open onto the resort’s lively outdoor plaza. Visitors can play in groups or practice solo while enjoying gourmet bites and inventive cocktails. When it’s time to take their shot, players will step up to a large, theater-style screen to try their hand at a selection of virtual games. Each simulator can fit up to eight players and offers fun no matter the guest’s skill level.
For pre- or post-round drinks, fairway fans can head to the luxurious lounge area to grab a cocktail or catch a game on one of the many HDTVs. On select nights, the venue will feature live musical performances, transforming into an entertainment hotspot.
“Our goal is for MGM Springfield to become a destination for the community and for the region. With entertainment experiences that can’t be found elsewhere, our resort should become the go-to place no matter what kind of evening you are looking for,” said Michael Mathis, president of MGM Springfield. “Those familiar with Topgolf already know how much fun is in store; and for those new to the experience – just wait. This is sure to be one of the most exciting corners of our resort.”
This collaboration marks the third Topgolf experience within the MGM Resorts’ portfolio, following the openings of the four-story flagship Topgolf venue at MGM Grand Las Vegas and the new Topgolf Swing Suite at MGM Detroit.
Topgolf Swing Suite President Ron Powers, said, “MGM Springfield is an exciting opportunity for Topgolf Swing Suite to grow our relationship with MGM Resorts. We believe our Swing Suite activation at this amazing resort will attract local residents as well as visitors and create a unique and interactive experience for events and conferences.”
The Topgolf Swing Suite complements the wide variety of entertainment options at MGM Springfield, including a contemporary cinema, bowling lanes, seasonal skating rink, outdoor marketplace and a partnership with the 8,000-seat MassMutual Center.
