The Topgolf sabbatical is almost over: The Allen location of Topgolf will reopen on August 26, representing the final Dallas-Fort Worth location to come back online.
Allen will join Topgolf's other three locations — Dallas, Fort Worth, and The Colony — who've all reopened following the big pandemic shutdown in March.
Like its siblings, the Allen location, which is at 1500 Andrews Pkwy., has instituted new protocols to help make the experience feel safe.
One of the biggest changes has been the installation of plastic dividers between every golfing bay, and between every table, which keeps groups enclosed in their own little bubble.
According to a release, they're enforcing social distancing in public guest areas, and masks must be worn at all times and all locations such as the lobby, bar/restaurant, walkways, restrooms, until groups get in their own reserved bay. At that point, masks are allowed to come off.
All associates wear masks and gloves, and they're cleaning all bays, computers, clubs, and balls between use.
The company is also introducing a new game that will incorporating imagery from Angry Birds, the mobile game first introduced in 2009.
It's an interactive golf experience that uses Topgolf's ball-tracing technology to blend the physical act of hitting a golf ball with Angry Birds' digital setting.
Guests can partner with Angry Birds characters Red, Chuck, and Bomb to demolish virtual structures placed on the Topgolf targets. There's a preview on their website.
