If you were to ask one hundred people how best to bond with your fellow human beings, most of them would tell you to show empathy towards your friends. To listen to them. To put an arm around their shoulder. To show them that you care and to be sensitive.
Well, Topgolfers aren’t most people. We think that the best way to bond with someone is to comprehensively defeat them at a competitive sporting event and absolutely crush their spirit while doing so. To gloat as you out-drive them into the black target. To loudly heckle as they attempt to concentrate on their own shot. To laugh hysterically as they completely miss the ball and leave you twenty points clear with only two balls left to play, safe in the knowledge that you will emerge victorious over the hapless friend/sworn opponent who stands before you, cursing furiously under their breath.
Of course, we’re joking; nobody takes Topgolf that seriously. But we are here to make socialising a sport – because who doesn’t enjoy a little healthy competition between friends? We don’t want to turn your night out into a battle though– we just provide the fun and games.
There are however, different Topgolf options for different social competitors. Want to roll-up on a weekday for a few drinks and a basic game? Great. A casual trip to Topgolf is the perfect way to spend quality time with mates. But if you’re looking for something with a little extra edge, there’s other choices available.
The Topgolf Shootout is a competitive socialiser’s dream. Every Monday and Thursday from 6-10pm, we invite all our guests to compete against each other at the venue, in an inclusive competition across two games of Topgolf. 1 st, 2nd and 3rd place win game credit but the real prize is the pride of finishing at the top of our leaderboard. Shootout is the perfect opportunity to play Topgolf, compete with friends and meet new, like-minded people.
And if that’s good enough for Andrew “Beef” Johnson, it’s good enough for us…
And for those who require motivation that goes beyond pride and that precious Topgolf credit, there’s our special, one-off annual events such as the Topgolf Pro-Am and Corporate Shoot-Out. Whether you’re a Club Pro, an enthusiastic amateur golfer or a member of an office group in need of a unique night-out, there’s something for every kind of competitive animal at Topgolf.
But we’ve saved the best for last here. Upcoming is our very special Topgolf Tour event, an international tournament where teams of two compete to win a $50,000 fortune, as well as an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas. The UK leg takes place on Saturday 8th July at Topgolf Watford, with entry available here (linked). Players will experience a minimum two hours’ gameplay with a hot breakfast, while kitted out in an official Under Armour tour t-shirt and shooting their way to the Grand Final at Topgolf Vegas.
If that doesn’t get your competitive juices flowing, nothing will.
Just remember to shake hands, congratulate the victor and wind down with a few drinks afterwards. When it comes down to socialising at Topgolf, everyone’s a winner.
