West Des Moines Topgolf planned with indoor golf range, restaurant


Topgolf has announced plans to build one of its popular year-round driving ranges and restaurants in West Des Moines.

The company intends to build a facility with 72 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays and a “chef-driven” restaurant and bar on the northwest corner of Mills Civic and Jordan Creek parkways, according to a news release. There also would be big screen TVs, music and year-round programming.

It would occupy a 12-acre site south of Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh and east of IMT Insurance, said Richard Hurd, founder and president of Hurd Real Estate, which owns the land.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Des Moines community and look forward to welcoming our new players to Topgolf in the near future,” Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway said in a news release. “Our focus is on creating more ways for people to play the game of golf in a fun and unique way, and the Des Moines area is the perfect place to kick off our growth within the state.”

Hurd said the timeline for construction is still unknown. The team needs to get its site plan and other items approved from the city of West Des Moines before work can begin.
