Ashfield Land has submitted a planning application for a new facility for Topgolf International at its Two 74 Glasgow development, off Cambuslang Road adjacent to Junction 2 of the M74.
Topgolf International 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.
“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. “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. We are very pleased to have submitted the planning application and to be taking another significant step forward with the project.”
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 programme.
Topgolf would create 350 full- and part-time jobs at this location. Nearly half of all Topgolf guests describe themselves as “non-golfers.”
