Golf entertainment centre Topgolf has opened its first Scottish venue in Glasgow.

The venue, which opened on Friday, is based just off the M74 near Rutherglen as part of the Clyde Gateway development project.

Visitors can take part in 72 climate-controlled outdoor hitting bays, point-scoring games, food and drink, music, and more than 100 HD televisions.

Players can book a bay, which accommodates up to six players, for £25 per hour until midday, £35 until 6pm, and then £45 to its closing time of 12am.

The opening of the venue created around 300 jobs in the Glasgow area.

The concept, originally founded in London, currently has 70 venues operating in six countries, and attracts more than 30 million players per year.

Topgolf vice-president Steve Lane said: “The UK holds a special place in our hearts as it’s where our Topgolf story began. It seems very apt that the next leg of our journey takes us to Scotland, the original home of golf.

“The Glasgow venue will be like nothing the country has ever seen. We’re thrilled to kick-off this development together with our partners at Ashfield and introduce a venue where friends and families can safely play together and share experiences.”
