SPRINGFIELD – (Staff Report from Official News Release) – The new casino resort at the center of town, near the birthplace of basketball in Springfield, Massachusetts will be teeing up some fun for its golf-loving patrons needing a break from the tables.
Becoming the first in the New England region available to the general public, the Topgolf Swing Suite will feature three high-tech simulators within a 2,800-square-foot suite and will open onto the resort’s outdoor plaza. Visitors can play in groups or practice solo while enjoying gourmet food and cocktails. When it’s time to take their shot, players will step up to a large, theater-style screen to try their hand at a selection of virtual games. Each simulator can fit up to eight players and offers fun no matter the guest’s skill level.
“Our goal is for MGM Springfield to become a destination for the community and for the region,” said Michael Mathis, president of MGM Springfield. “With entertainment experiences that can’t be found elsewhere, our resort should become the go-to place no matter what kind of evening you are looking for, and those familiar with Topgolf already know how much fun is in store.”
This collaboration marks the third Topgolf experience within the MGM Resorts’ portfolio, following the openings of the four-story flagship Topgolf venue at MGM Grand Las Vegas and the new Topgolf Swing Suite at MGM Detroit.
“We believe our Swing Suite activation at this amazing resort will attract local residents as well as visitors and create a unique and interactive experience for events and conferences,” said Topgolf Swing Suite President Ron Powers.
The Topgolf Swing Suite complements the wide variety of entertainment options at MGM Springfield, including a contemporary cinema, bowling lanes, seasonal skating rink, outdoor marketplace and a partnership with the 8,000-seat MassMutual Center.
