FISHERS, Ind. (WTHR) — Topgolf in Fishers is reopening its doors at 10 a.m. Monday, making it one of the first Topgolf locations in the country to reopen.

"Topgolf is following the guidelines of local health and community recommendations," said Dave Lingafelter, the director of oOperations for Topgolf Fishers. "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. 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.”

Servers will be bringing customers food and drinks in each golf bay, but if you want to grab a drink at the bar, you're going to be out of luck for a few days. LIngafelter said the bar will be closed this week.

And even though all the golf bays will be available for use, the total capacity at Topgolf has been cut in half.

"[Maximum capacity] is usually close to 1,400 people, and we'll be 612 this week — 204 guests per floor," Lingafelter says.

On March 18, all 56 Topgolf locations in the country were shut down until further notice due to coronavirus concerns. At the time, the company issued the following statement:

“As a result of the recent mandates on health and safety across the globe, Topgolf will be closing our U.S. venues at this time until further notice. Our thoughts are with our Guests, communities and all those impacted by the coronavirus as we navigate through this difficult time. Thank you for your continued support. We will be ready to welcome you back to our venues for unforgettable experiences when we can do so safely and responsibly.”

For the Fishers Topgolf location, that time is now.

Last Monday, May 11, the Topgolf in Oklahoma City reopened, becoming the first of the company's 56 national locations to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, Topgolf in Fishers opens its doors for the first time in exactly two months.
