“Good fun for beginners and seasoned golfers alike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

TopGolf is a golf driving range, of sorts, but it can appeal to anyone, whether they really love the game or have never swung a club. It adds some unique twists to the standard driving range experience by using balls with embedded chips that can identify your shot and targets with sensors that can tell you just how close you came to the target. There are about 6 different games available to play, or you can simply swing away at the targets at random and see where you hit. The nearest targets are hard to miss, so provides some positive opportunities for even the rawest of beginners. Each group has their own "booth" in which they can sit, eat food, have a drink and swing away, with the scoreboard screen right there, so you can monitor your score and your individual shots.

The food is nothing to get excited about - nachos, burgers, etc - but it's not bad, and the service can be a bit spotty at times, but is usually also not bad. Beer, wine, mixed drinks and soft drinks are also available, and all are served at your table, rather than requiring you to go stand in line at a snack counter. Whether you want to bring the kids, go solo, or have an outing with friends, this is not a bad option - even if you are not a golfer.

It can sometimes be a bit too much when they are really busy, but you can likely imagine when those times are likely to be, so if you avoid those peak times, it will make the experience more pleasant.

“Excellent twist to just hitting balls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2011

The popularity of this place just continues to amaze me. Great concept of bringing beer, boobs and targets to the golf scene. This place attracts all types - golfers, couples, family, friends and groups. Where else can you laugh at people trying to whack a little white ball into a target while drinking a beer. The food has improved and now they have added real ice tea and burgers to the menu. Kudos for taking out the clunky chairs and adding real bar stool & tables. The wait can be very high during evenings. The membership cards are annoying and wish they would drop them.
