DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas-based Topgolf entertainment group has acquired online sports gaming company World Golf Tour.
Terms of the deal were not released Wednesday. A Topgolf statement says the agreement represents a convergence of the online and offline golf experience.
Topgolf has 24 venues worldwide, featuring driving ranges using golf balls outfitted with microchips so players can aim at targets. The balls instantly score each shot for distance and accuracy. Topgolf complexes also include food and drink venues.
San Francisco-based WGT has more than 14 million players worldwide with web and mobile golf games.
