“I cannot wait to see the talent Virginia Beach has to offer for our new location,” said Topgolf Virginia Beach Director of Operations Michael Matley. “We are excited to meet some great candidates and inspire them to begin a career with Topgolf. It is truly a one-of-a-kind job interview that you don’t see anywhere else.”
Topgolf Virginia Beach is located at 5444 Greenwich Road. Hired associates for the new 65,000-square-foot venue will receive free Topgolf game play, food and beverage discounts, plus the opportunity to obtain medical, vision and dental insurance and participate in a 401(k) retirement savings program.
Matley noted more than 1,500 people auditioned at the most recent Virginia opening in Loudoun County, so interested applicants should reserve their audition spot early.
This will be the third Topgolf location in Virginia; Topgolf Alexandria was the first Topgolf in the U.S., converted from an existing driving range and opened in 2005. The Loudoun and Virginia Beach locations are Topgolf’s flagship model, built from the ground up. They feature upgraded technology and amenities, new golfing games, climate-controlled hitting bays, each with its own ball dispenser.
Topgolf Virginia Beach recently began selling game credit and memberships, available for a one-time $5 cost or $250 per month, depending on the level of benefits desired. Residents can purchase a Lifetime Membership plus $45 worth of game credit on sale for $25 until Dec. 19. Additionally, the first 50 people to purchase a Platinum Membership will have the initiation fee waived and will receive an invitation for themselves plus five guests to attend the exclusive Topgolf VIP grand opening party. The evening will include complimentary food, drinks, entertainment, celebrity appearances and Topgolf play.
