Topgolf’s Zach Shor to address 2018 Golf Business Forum
December 20, 2017

The organisers of the 2018 Golf Business Forum have confirmed that Zach Shor, Chief Operating Officer of Topgolf International, will be a keynote speaker at next July's Golf Business Forum.

Described as a “golf entertainment phenomenon”, Topgolf operates 33 venues, primarily in the USA, attracting more than 10.5 million guests annually.

A year round proposition combining golf and family entertainment, Topgolf, in an exclusive partnership with Village Roadshow, will open its first Australian venue on the Gold Coast in mid-2018. 

Spearheading Topgolf’s international rollout, Shor will share insights on the brand’s success at the Forum.

With Topgolf committed to expansion it has a commitment to expansion and is currently on negotiation to open facilities in new locations in the USA and internationally.

Responsible for helping localise the Topgolf brand all over the world, Shor manages the day to day operations of the Topgolf International team, while searching for international partners to help establish Topgolf venues in new countries.

He is focused on fostering an international Guest experience that is authentic both to Topgolf and local culture. 

Having joined the business in 2011, Shor previously served as Topgolf Vice President of Real Estate Development, overseeing all aspects of site selection, including the negotiation, entitlement and development processes.

The Topgolf propostion offers competitive golfing games for all ages and skill levels and advanced technology to track players' shots. Players hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot's accuracy and distance while awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield.

Each venue offers a premium entertainment experience, featuring an impressive food and beverage menu, music, games, climate-controlled hitting bays and hundreds of HDTVs.

Topgolf also offers fun, interactive experiences through its Topgolf U lessons, leagues, tournaments, KidZone parties and social and corporate events.

Topgolf’s Gold Coast facility is expected to attract over 400,000 visitors in its first year.
