Have you played Topgolf yet? Have you even heard about Topgolf? Topgolf is the newest game in town. Topgolf offers social fun even if one lacks golf skills. Topgolf is so much fun—even if one lacks good fitness and health. Truly! Topgolf is for the young, old, healthy or not-so-healthy, sedentary or athletic. Today, Topgolf is the place for one and all to enjoy a very good time!
A Topgolf entertainment facility opened August 15, 2015 in Centennial, Colorado just southeast of Downtown Denver. Topgolf is so much fun! It is social, and it is “cool” especially in the evening during the colorful sunset while dusk fades to darkness and the city lights start to twinkle brighter than the stars above. During the day, it may be as much fun as well with the Colorado sunshine beaming and shining brightly for it is open 363 days a year! Perhaps, Topgolf has improved on the concept of a sports bar because it offers fresh, delicious food and assortments of both hard or soft drinks as well as interactive entertainment and music. Best of all one does not need to know how to play golf to enjoy the visit here. There is a lower level lounge with complimentary pool tables, shuffleboard and xbox kinect. Topgolf’s website calls itself, “The ultimate venue for fun.”
For sure, Topgolf is the 21st century social activity. A lot more dynamic than going to a bowling alley because for one reason, it is partially outside where one breathes fresh air. Neon lights and loud music create an upbeat, fantastic atmosphere. People of all ages everywhere are found smiling and having fun here! You know it is popular as soon as you drive into the parking lot which is packed with cars. Although there is valet parking if you prefer not to search for a spot among the 425 slots in Centennial. Parking is easy and it is quite exciting to walk with eager anticipation to the main building.
Corporations organize Topgolf night for a purpose of getting executives to loosen up and mingle with one another. Corporations use good strategy to encourage executives to open up and communicate in a relaxed way at Topgolf. There are 250 HDTVs for one to sit back and watch the Colorado Rockies play baseball, for example, if in need of more stimulation! Liking golf is optional because the fun is found simply in the atmosphere here.
Organized Golf leagues or clubs—such as the Lonetree’s Ladies Nine-Hole League—create a night of Topgolf with spouses or significant others for a seasonal beginning: Kick off the Spring golf season and get everyone re-acquainted at Topgolf. On the other hand, high school coeds may get a group together to play Topgolf for fun, flirting, drinking, and dance music. Word has it that “Today, Topgolf serves more than 8 million annual visitors worldwide.” There are numerous Topgolf locations open or opening soon throughout the country in cities such as Salt lake City, Centennial, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Las Vegas.
As history tells it, the Jolliffe brothers envisioned this game while they were bored at their local driving range. So, Topgolf is similar to going to a driving range but evolved into a fantastic super modern game like the combination of archery (or darts), bowling, and golf. There are little cubicles called “bays” with astroturf and ball dispensaries. Golf clubs are offered in each bay. The “party” or group sits around a comfy couch and table to eat, drink, and watch the current player hit the ball or the HDTV. Similar to a bowling game, players take turns hitting the ball toward a target and then congratulating each other with high fives or cute jokes. In short, “Players hit microchipped golf balls at targets on an outfield like a dartboard in the distance.” So the microchip in the golfball keeps the score on a screen near each bay. The highest score wins. It is very high tech and so easy to immediately grasp the game rules and begin to play with each other for scores. A group of say fifty people breaks up into 6 per bay to play. In Colorado, there are 102 climate controlled hitting bays on three levels. It is so cool to stare out of one’s bay at the ball targets while seemingly zillions of golf balls go zipping all around in front of your gaze towards the illuminated targets in the 215 yard outfield—at night, it is like watching fireflies fluttering around in the dark.
