Doesn't appear that you looked into what TopGolf is.

$40 per hour on the weekends. It doesn't seem too expensive. Of course if they charge per hour, I'm going to be hitting a lot more balls then I would normally hit at a driving range.

I've always found it to be decently priced. The one I usually go to (Gilbert AZ) is same price every day but broken down by time of day: $25/hr before noon, $35/hr 12-5, and $45/hr after 5. That hour price is also per bay, not per person, and each bay takes up to 6 people. So split evenly that's pretty cheap. Personally I also think the food they serve is very good and eat way more than I intend.

While normally I always have a preference for locating things downtown over West Omaha, I do kinda feel like this is something that would do better in the suburbs. As for "long term business model" the company has been around since 2000 so they can't be doing too bad.

There's no way Top Golf would survive downtown. These places are basically their own billboard. They need to be located next to interstate highways or an extremely high traffic street because these places need to be seen by thousands of people passing by every day to keep drawing customers. If it was located down by the ballpark, there wouldn't be much visibility. After the newness wears off, the place would soon be forgotten.

Nothing really new:

Topgolf may build indoor golf range in Omaha

The Dallas-based company wouldn’t provide further details, but Topgolf spokeswoman Morgan Wallace said the firm is “actively looking right now” in the area.

Topgolf “usually builds on 10 to 12 acres, but it all depends,” Wallace said.

Last month, Topgolf announced that it would begin construction of a 53,000-square-foot complex in Huntsville, Alabama. It’s the first venue that is smaller than the company’s typical 65,000-square-foot venue, Wallace said.

It’s part of the company’s plan to scout new locations in smaller and mid-size cities.

Trenton Magid said that the rumored location is the Westroads Auto Mall area.

Westrooads Auto Mall area makes the bestt sense with visibility from Dodge and 680.

They must have some big bucks then because H&H just bought that luxury dealership. Would they be willing to sell off the land that quickly or were they just buying off competition?

They are relocating some of the dealerships to the area behind the Nebraska Realty office building on 168th and Dodge and others to the site being graded at 370 and highway 50.

To me it would make more sense along Dodge out between 180th-204th. Seems like it would be easier, and less time consuming build without having to demolish car dealerships.

It appears that car dealerships are moving either west to 168th & Dodge or 370 and I-80.
I saw that SE and SW 192nd & Dodge has a replat out, so I doubt any dealerships are going there...

Its golfing and drinking with the added plus of food and not walking. Given the traditional shape of the average joe golfer and I'd say its pretty dang solid.

It looks like a combination of bowling and golfing. I like both so it seems like a good idea to me.

Isn't this the standard arrangement in Asia? I have seen video of tiered golf driving areas in Japan.

It'd be worth doubting it if this was literally just a driving range. We have plenty of driving ranges. All intended as working on your game. This is about the game modes, alcohol, and food. Certainly you can show up and not play the games, but seeing as that it creates competition at the range, you can work on your game and have a score tracked.

I actually prefer it to traditional golfing. I go to the one in KC (Overland Park off 435). The one near the strip in Vegas is awesome with the view.

I happen to go past the one in Tampa this past weekend it will easily fit in that location and pretty good too.
