Two big names in New Jersey entertainment teamed up as Freehold entertainment and events venue iPlay America held a ribbon-cutting for its new Topgolf Swing Suite earlier this week.

The swing suite, where golfers can take part in virtual golf challenges and other games, officially opens to the public Friday, iPlay said in a news release. The indoor swing suite features six simulator bays in a luxury lounge environment that features food and beverage service and high-definition TVs.

“After a long journey, we are excited to share the Topgolf Swing Suite experience with iPlay America’s guests,” Jessica Schwartz, iPlay’s vice president of sales and marketing, said in a prepared statement. “As the first family entertainment center in the United States to incorporate this state-of-the-art experience into our attraction offerings, we’ve been able to expand our selection of activities to meet a demand from our older demographic.

“Topgolf Swing Suite is not only the ideal venue for friends to have a great time together, but it also adds a unique new element that can be incorporated into events hosted at iPlay America.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured Freehold Mayor Barbara J. McMorrow, as well as former New York Giants Ottis Anderson and Stephen “Touchdown Maker” Baker.

“We are thrilled to bring Topgolf Swing Suite into an innovative and entertaining space like iPlay America,” Peter Kratsios, Topgolf’s business development director, said in a prepared statement. “Topgolf Swing Suite offers a variety of virtual games for all skill levels in a luxurious setting.”

Topgolf is known in the state for its two popular outdoor locations, in Edison and Mount Laurel. It has two other Swing Suite locations in Atlantic City and Toms River.
