Entertainment venues reopen during Phase Two


BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33/FOX 44) – More entertainment venues are opening up now that the state is in a phase two reopening.

It’s a day to get back to the clubs for Frank Richard and his grandson.

“We’re real excited,” said Richard.

So are the employees at Topgolf, despite some rain. The sports entertainment complex just reopened to customers Tuesday for the first time since the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve added a lot of different things to the venue in order for our guests to feel extra secure about their safety and the safety of our associates as well,” explained Paul Howard, Director of Operations at Topgolf Baton Rouge.

Howard added the complex’s design helped with social distancing since the tees are 11 feet apart. They also added clear dividers between each bay. Clubs, balls and screens are disinfected after each group. You can’t sit at the bar, but you can still order alcohol and have it sent to your bay. Event centers like Topgolf were able to open under the state’s phase two reopening guidelines. Bowling alleys could too.

At All Star Lanes, there’s only one entrance for you to walk in the building and once you’re in, your temperature will be taken.

Employees will help you get fitted for a sanitized ball and shoes and groups of bolwers can be further apart since there are 64 lanes. General Manager Mike LaCroix says people feeling comfortable is a huge part of his reopening plan.

“It’s our responsibility to provide a safe environment which I feel that we’ve done and I think that only helps the community,” added LaCroix.
