Topeka Sports Center brings back par 3 golf course and entertainment

Perhaps best known for the trademark dinosaur that greets guests at the entrance, Sports Center is a 54-acre family entertainment center located at 6545 SW 10th Avenue in Topeka since 1972.

A tradition of the Topeka family, the company has undergone many transformations over its 50-year history and recently changed ownership.

Brothers Scott, Kurt, Brad and Brian Walker bought the sports center almost a year ago in May 2021 from previous owners, Stan and Sheryl Swanson.

“We always wanted to do something together, us four brothers,” said Kurt Walker. “There’s not much to do outdoors in Topeka, so we wanted to create a more tropical amusement park vibe.”

After:Topeka offers many hiking and biking opportunities. These 9 trails stand out.

Walker said that while Kansas City residents have many options close to home, Topekans are currently required to travel out of town if they want to enjoy a modernized golf experience, and the Walkers would like to see that change. .

The arcade section of the Sports Center can be updated with new games for people under new management.

The sports center expands its offerings

Renovations have already begun on the 2,700 square foot clubhouse, which includes a snack bar, indoor seating areas and a game room, with plans to update current arcade offerings. The Walkers recently applied for and obtained a liquor license to allow them to begin selling a variety of beer options, including products from the Boulevard Brewing Company, and are in the process of adding a slush machine before the ‘summer.
