20 years ago, twin brothers wanted to change the driving range experience forever by putting a microchip into a golf ball. What started off as a game to revolutionise golf has transformed the way people socialise with family, friends and colleagues through activity-based entertainment. Today, Topgolf has evolved into a global sports community creating good times for all whilst remaining true to its origins. Whether you have been with us since the first venue in Watford 20 years ago or visited for the first time this year, we thank you and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Feeling nostalgic? take a look at some of our favourite moments these past 20 years and if you have an old membership card laying around the house, you may have a chance to win some fantastic prizes!
Let's take a trip down memory lane. We'd love to know how many of these you remember from years gone by and what your personal favourite moment at Topgolf has been.
From Watford to Dubai
Our first venue opened in Watford (UK) on 23rd November 2000. Inspired by the design of the Millennium Dome, Topgolf was in every part a modern golf facility. Two more UK venues followed in 2004 (Chigwell) & 2005 (Surrey), both of which very different in design and unique still to this day.
The Venue has changed quite a bit since then, as has the logo! Did someone say neon?
But the venues continue to evolve, becoming grand designs that event Kevin McCloud would be impressed by. From our Flagship venue in Las Vegas to our brand-new openings in Monterrey & Dubai, I think it’s safe to say we’ve taken it up a notch.
Topgolf Food Challenges
If you’ve been visiting Topgolf for a while then you’ll know that when it came to food challenges, there was only one place to go. From our famous Stingin’ Wings to the Seaside Sundae, there was a challenge for every tastebud. Time and time again confident looking legends would sign the waiver form knowing deep down they were in for an uncomfortable evening. We saw sweat and tears as crowds gathered to watch the drama unfold, defeat staring them in the eyes as once again our food challenge got the better of another hopeful guest.
Maybe you took on one of our challenges and came out victorious, for that we salute you!
