TopGolf is a golf entertainment force to be reckoned with, and it’s a scene unlike any other in the history of the sport. Fans hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while also awarding points for hitting targets ranging from 20-250 yards away. And although the food and drinks don't require high-tech gadgetry, it doesn’t make them any less awesome. Serving more than 1.5 million guests annually, TopGolf now stands as the premier golf entertainment complex where the competition of sport meets your favorite neighborhood hangout.
