TopGolf is the foremost golf entertainment complex where sports meet your favorite hangout. Challenge your friends and family to addictive point-scoring golf games that anyone from the hopeful pro golfer to a 7-year-old kid can play year-round. Just picture a 219-meter (720-foot) outfield with dartboard like targets in the ground. The closer to the center or “bull’s eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls, the more points you receive.

Score even bigger with Topgolf’s extensive food and beverage menu that is sure to impress even the pickiest foodies. TopGolf’s wait staff, more affectionately known as “Bay Hosts,” will take your order and deliver food and beverages directly to your hitting bay. Don’t come here if you want to work on your golf game. TopGolf is more suited for small and large groups that want to hang out, eat and hit a few golf balls. This location is huge with three levels, but it can get packed on a Friday or Saturday night.
