The latest sensation that's sweeping the nation is Topgolf, a high-tech driving range. The Dallas-based company plans to open its 51st location in Michigan this winter.

The gist of it this: Players whack golf balls embedded with microchips at targets, relaxing in a full-service booth area while a computer keeps score. It's like playing golf without leaving the clubhouse, or dealing with those tiny pencils.



The Detroit area location is set to open in a $12.5 million 65,000-square-foot facility at 500 Great Lakes Crossing Drive in Auburn Hills. The company is expecting to hire 500 employees, including servers, bartenders, kitchen, maintenance, guest services staff, and more. According to a dramatic statement:

A Topgolf MISSION: Ambition hiring event is one of the most unique ways one will ever interview for a job. Cloaked in mystery, but full of intrigue, these events are Topgolf's special way of showcasing its culture of fun and energy. Applicants are inspired to leave their dress-up clothes and pre-rehearsed answers at the door and start thinking mission-minded. Their time interviewing will consist of gathering intel and navigating through group activities, interactive panel interviews, one-on-one convos with Topgolf's venue leadership teams, games and more.

Alrighty then. Candidates can apply here.
