The Garden State is getting even greener.
Plans are driving forward to construct a Topgolf in northern New Jersey, reports NJ.com. It will be the state’s third installation of the overwhelmingly popular driving range and entertainment complex.
Officials in Parsippany have been chipping away on local approval to construct the three-deck golfer’s paradise — one slated to bring 102 swing bays into town.
Parsippany’s zoning board just greenlit the project and the rest of the governmental approvals should be a gimme, per the outlet.
The 67,500-square-foot slated facility is planned to be built on a land parcel in between parallel thoroughfares I-80 and Route 46 near Beverwyck Road. The Topgolf will replace four vacant office buildings sandwiched between a park and a shopping center.
It’s size is on par with fellow New York City-area locations of Edison, NJ and Holtsville, Long Island, both of which have 100-plus bays spread throughout three stories. New Jersey’s other existing spot — also around the same scale — is in the Philadelphia-area nabe of Mount Laurel.
A tee time for the new range’s construction remains to be determined.
Nationwide, Topgolf operates 90 facilities — most of which are scattered throughout Florida and Texas.
Rhode Island’s first location is also coming soon to Cranston.
The business’s hole-in-one success has been thanks to, in many ways, an ability to pair crowds that either love or know nothing about golf.
It’s done through light-up targets and themed games, comfy seating areas that feature huge TVs, in addition to food and drink service.
More devout golfers enjoy GPS-tracked balls, which give detailed specs on their swing’s exact location, velocity and slice, too.
