Dubai's soon-to-be-opened mega entertainment and sporting venue, Topgolf Dubai, is taking shape at Emirates Golf Club.

Due to open in October, the company is currently recruiting for 200 employees to bring the concept to life.

The three-storey, 60,000 square-foot venue is the Middle East and Asia's first Topgolf facility – an entertainment concept that was born in the UK and has since taken the US by storm. There are currently more than 50 Topgolf locations globally, with three in the UK and one in Australia.

The concept is an interactive, multi-level and computerised take on your typical driving range experience.

Dubai's outpost will feature 102 private driving range-style bays. Balls are fitted with microchips, which means the computer system can give you feedback on your swing, and can even provide data for point-scoring and other challenges.

The venue will also be home to three restaurants, as well as a "modern" mini-golf venue for all ages. You can even order food to your driving range bay, and there will be big-screen television screens that will display your scores instantly. A rooftop terrace will offer impressive views over Dubai Marina and Media City.

Topgolf now says it needs recruits for for roles in events, food and beverage, front office, golf academy instructors and more. A total of 42 different job functions are on offer.

Chris May, chief executive of Dubai Golf, the company behind Topgolf Dubai, says the recruitment drive marks an “exciting milestone in our countdown to our opening".
