Topgolf Leaders and Ecolab Experts Share Benefits of the ESC Program

Topgolf has implemented the Ecolab Science Certified program across all of their venues (over 70 sports and entertainment complexes serving 60 million visitors a year across the U.S.) as a way to help ensure players know they are committed to meeting and exceeding their expectations for cleanliness and safety. The seal on the door means the players can focus on having fun (and perfecting their golf swing), rather than worrying about cleanliness and safety. Find out more about how the program helps Topgolf advance cleaner, safer practices.
