Two 74, Cambuslang Road, Rutherglen, Glasgow
Topgolf Press Statement
Topgolf International has identified Ashfield Land’s Two 74 Glasgow development as a unique and exciting opportunity to expand its global footprint. The entertainment heavyweight hopes to bring its state of the art, multi-level golf entertainment complex to the City and Scotland for the first time.
In partnership with Ashfield Land, Topgolf has today revealed initial plans for a major facility at Two 74 off Cambuslang Road adjacent to Junction 2 of the M74.
“Our first three venues were in the UK, and we have been looking to expand here in Scotland for a number of years now,” said Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway. “Throughout the last few months, we have focused on securing a suitable location in Glasgow. Two 74 is the ideal location for us, and we will work with the Local Authority and other agencies to secure an implementable consent.”
Steven McGarva, Development Director at Ashfield Land who has led the strategic assembly of the Two 74 site and is overseeing its build out, commented, “Ashfield Land is delighted to be working with Topgolf on a new and exciting venue for Glasgow which will bring with it significant jobs and investment. Our plans will be finalized in the coming weeks with a detailed application expected to be submitted by the end of the year.”
Topgolf’s interest underlines the fantastic location that Two 74 offers and is another substantial step toward realising the potential of this strategic development location. The site is located on the Cambuslang Road, around one mile east of Rutherglen town centre.
The prominent location lies at Junction 2 of the M74 and is part of the wider Clyde Gateway, Scotland’s biggest and most ambitious regeneration program.
Topgolf would create 350 full- and part-time jobs at this location.
Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as “non-golfers.”
Topgolf pioneered a technology to make golf more fun and engaging. It has since emerged as a global sports and entertainment community focused on connecting people in meaningful ways.
Today, Topgolf continues to blend technology and entertainment, golfers and non-golfers, children and adults – to create an experience that makes socializing a sport for everyone. No matter the occasion or who you share it with, we believe every great time starts with play, is fueled by food and beverage, moved by music and made possible through community.
Every Topgolf venue features dozens of high-tech, climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round comfort, a chef-inspired menu for year-round deliciousness and hundreds of Associates eager to help create the moments that matter.
Topgolf is truly everyone’s game, with 45 venues entertaining more than 13 million Guests annually, original content shows, next-gen simulator lounges through Topgolf Swing Suite, the global Topgolf Tour competition, pop-up social experiences like Topgolf Crush, Toptracer technology as seen on TV, and the world’s largest digital golf audience.
