Another First….TopGolf

Yesterday we tried our hand at TopGolf! What a great concept. You do not have to be a golfer to play and anyone – young or old – can have a go. The venue is well set up with a  relaxed atmosphere – you can play as much as you like with unlimited balls available, or you can sit back and be waited upon, enjoying a drink or two and a meal or snack. There is also an indoor bar and restaurant if you prefer.

We went to our “local” TopGolf in Allen (a northern outer suburb of Dallas, about 45 minutes away). There are 3 levels of covered playing bays, with each bay set up with lounges, table, golf clubs and a storage area for your own clubs if you choose to bring them and your own teeing off area. The ‘outfield’ is set out with dart-board like targets set into the ground. There are a variety of games you can play, but the main game centers around trying to hit the ball into the targets; the further you hit the microchipped ball and the closer to the center of the target, the more points you get. A computerised score board displayed on a television screen will keep track of everyone’s scores.

I am no golfer, yet I really enjoyed myself and this would be a great social event for a small group of friends (you can have up to 6 people in a bay). I think we will certainly go again! Maybe next time we can drag along some friends. 🙂
