The company expects to hire about 400 to 450 people to operate the facility, with 100 of those hires filling full-time jobs.

TopGolf is funding the Oklahoma City development through the company's private investors, along with the help of EPR Properties, a $3.4 billion real estate investment trust.

Dallas-based TopGolf was founded in 2000 and has 10 locations that serve more than 2 million customers each year. Players hit golf balls containing a computer microchip that tracks each shot's accuracy and distance, while also awarding points for hitting targets on an outfield.

Each TopGolf location features climate-controlled driving bays, along with food and beverage service.

Cathy O'Connor, president of the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City, said that while she thought TopGolf was a great development for the city, it was unlikely that the company would be able to receive any economic incentives from the city for the project.

TopGolf hopes to have its Oklahoma City location open by the spring of 2015.
