A NEW golf venue will create 300 jobs when it's officially opened later this year.

Topgolf Glasgow will open their first Scottish facility just off the M74 at Rutherglen, and will create a completely new golfing experience, including point-scoring games, bars, and restaurants in a three-storey facility.

The American-based company is now looking for new staff to fill a host of roles in departments including operations, hospitality, and administration.

Almost all of its senior management team have already been recruited and a drive is currently underway to fill a hospitality management team.

A final wave of roles will be advertised at the end of summer and will include full-time and casual opportunities.

Eight hospitality manager vacancies are being advertised, overseeing the day-to-day running of the venue and involving bar management, events and golf services.

The training, commencing in September, includes several weeks at Topgolf’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas.

There are also a number of roles available in the running of the new venue’s kitchen including executive sous chef and sous chef.

Simon Green, director of operations at Topgolf Glasgow, said: “We have recruited an amazing bunch of people to help us launch our first Scottish venue and are eager to meet our new recruits in the coming months as they come on board the Topgolf Glasgow team.

“They are full of energy for the new project and our planned trip to Dallas will only strengthen that enthusiasm when they see our venue in operation.

“Personally, I’m extremely excited to have our senior team mostly in place and I’m looking forward to adding the final eight team members and working closely with them as we gear up for launch.”

Topgolf Glasgow will feature 72 state-of-the-art hitting bays where players will experience technology-driven fun.

Guests can expect point-scoring games, chef-driven menus, signature drinks and music, with private event rooms for corporate meetings and celebrations.
