Topgolf COO confirmed as 2018 Keynote


We’re thrilled to announce that Zach Shor, COO of Topgolf International will be a keynote speaker at next July's Golf Business Forum.

Topgolf is a phenomenon when it comes to blending sports and socialising. With 33 venues entertaining more than 10.5 million guests annually, Topgolf is truly everyone's game and is a favourite with golfers and non-golfers alike. Topgolf, in an exclusive partnership with Village Roadshow, will open its first Australian venue on the Gold Coast in mid-2018.  The $35 million destination is the first of 6-8 that Village hopes to open in Australia.  It is estimated over 400,000 visitors are expected in the first year.

Zach is spearheading the international rollout for Topgolf, and will share insights on Topgolf’s success. We look forward to welcoming Zach to Melbourne next July!
