FISHERS, Ind. (WTHR) — Topgolf in Fishers will be reopening for the second time this week.

It had opened on Monday only to be ordered closed by the state on Tuesday.

Topgolf issued a statement to 13News saying it now has the green light from state and local officials to reopen at 10 a.m. Friday.

"From the start, Topgolf wanted our Fishers reopening to be part of the safe and responsible return of favorite Indiana businesses. We’re grateful for the community support we received as we clarified our ability to reopen under state guidelines. When we reopen on Friday, our Guests can expect the same safety measures that were in place earlier this week to ensure you can play with confidence at Topgolf.”

13News was at Topgolf earlier this week when it showed safety measures it was taking to meet guidelines.

"We're 6-foot social distancing, we've got signs all throughout the venue, restrooms and elevators. We've put dividers in our bays between each table, in between the club holders," Dave Lingafelter, the director of Operations for Topgolf Fishers said at the time. "We're doing health and safety checks on our associates as they come in. Things such as checking temperatures and asking health safety questions to ensure they're ready to come back to work, as well as masks and gloves on our workers.”

It also cut the total capacity in half.
