This will be the second Topgolf location in the Chicago area; Topgolf Wood Dale was converted from an existing driving range and opened in 2007.

It will feature upgraded technology and amenities, new golfing games, climate-controlled hitting bays, each with its own ball dispenser.
Hintz noted that more than 1,500 people auditioned at the most recent Topgolf opening in Kansas City, so interested applicants should reserve their audition spot early.
