Almost one year after breaking ground near Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, Topgolf Detroit - Auburn Hills will officially open to the public on Friday, Dec. 7 at 9 a.m.

Crews broke ground on the $12.5 million, 65,000-square-foot location in January and it was expected to bring hundreds of full and part-time jobs to the area. There are 102 bays in the area.

Pricing for Topgolf will be $25 per hour, per bay from open to noon every day, $35 per hour, per bay from noon to 5 p.m. and $45 per hour per bay from 5 p.m. to close. 

"We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Topgolf, a premier entertainment destination, to Auburn Hills," said Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel. "Topgolf is the perfect complement to our entertainment district near Great Lakes Crossing Outlets."

"We are excited to open here during the holiday season," said Topgolf Detroit-Auburn Hills Director of Operations Brian Birckbichler. "Topgolf is about bringing people together and creating great times for all, and we want our venue to be a second home for everyone in this community."

Guests at Topgolf can enjoy point-scoring golf games using microchipped balls that score themselves. The accuracy, distance and others are shown immediately on a TV screen in the hitting bay.

In 2017, the Topgolf Swing Suite opened at MGM Grand in downtown Detroit.

On top of the game, the three-level complex will feature 3,000 square feet of private event space, plus 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time.
