A Topgolf entertainment facility opened Thursday near the St. Johns Town Center.

Topgolf features a multi-level, high-tech driving range meant not only to appeal to avid golfers, but also wants to have something for everyone, said marketing manager Alexa Wheat.

The Jacksonville Topgolf venue features two full bars, a restaurant, live music, pool tables, an outside deck, gaming consoles and event rooms, Wheat said. “We’ve seen bachelor and bachelorette parties, corporate events, holiday parties, any event you could possibly dream up we have to offer,” she said.
