Topgolf Overland Park

Social League FAQs

I've never played golf, or Topgolf before. Can I still play in this league?
Absolutely! That's the beauty of Topgolf - no experience is required. Topgolf Social Leagues are for every skillset. We're all about the social element of the game! Come out, have fun, meet new friends and then grab some drinks.


I'm actually a pretty good golfer. Will I still have fun in this league?

First of all, congrats! Secondly, you sure will. Our leagues are casually competitive, but if you're looking for a little more advanced play, we also offer The Topgolf Tour so be on the lookout for 2017 dates.


Are there any age restrictions for Social Leagues?

Yes. Participants must be 21 years and older. It's not that we're trying to be a buzz-kill, it's because we serve alcohol at the postgame social.


Do you offer Corporate Teams and how do I sign up?

We welcome corporate teams in our leagues! Starting a corporate team is as easy as creating a regular team.

If you are using a company credit card, you can register online as the Team Captain and pay for the entire team. Once the team dues are paid for, you can invite your teammates to join from your Dashboard (follow the directions listed above under "How do I get my friends to register for my team?"). If you need to use an alternate payment method, please contact us.


What does it mean when it says I've been Waitlisted?

Every league night we have room for only 32 teams. Once we meet that number, we waitlist teams. This means no new teams may be formed, but players are still able to register. If a team slot opens up (which does happen occasionally), we offer the spot to the first team on the waitlist.

When a league sells out, we waitlist player registrations. If room for more players becomes available, we offer the spots to the first players on the waitlist.

NOTE: You must enter payment information to join a waitlist, but you will not be charged unless you are confirmed to play in the league.


What happens if my team has to miss a game?

If you're a Team Captain, please be sure that you will have enough people to make each game. If you know ahead of time that your team will be unable to attend your game, please contact us.


What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellations must be received by 11:59 PM CST on June 22, 2017 in order to receive a refund, after which date all payments are final. When you register, we custom order a t-shirt in your size, take you into consideration as we create evenly distributed teams and even turn other potential players away if we sell out. Your registration matters!

For some unforeseen reason you are no longer able play in a league we will review each inquiry on a case-by-case basis.


What if I can't fill my team with 8 players? Why am I still paying the same price?

The fees associated with Topgolf Leagues are team fees and not player fees. While the fee will be greater per person for teams with unfilled rosters, it does mean each player will get more Topgolf bay time. The more players (8 maximum / 4 minimum) on a team, the less it costs per player to take part on a league night

Teams can continually add to their roster by inviting friends or bringing in players who have signed up as Free Agents just as long as the team doesn't exceed 8 players.


When do we receive our team t-shirts?

Hopefully, you have other shirts to wear in the meantime, but for teams who register by close of business on Monday, June 19, t-shirts will be delivered to your Topgolf league venue, where you can collect them Week 2.

Teams will be provided with a t-shirt, personalized with the team name, for each player in the sizes requested. If a team had not completed their roster or a player did not specify a size, the team will be provided with additional L(large) t-shirts to make up the remaining total needed.

Any teams registering between June 23 - July 3 will receive their t-shirts Week 5.

Team Captains

What is the responsibility of the Team Captain?
With great power, comes great responsibility – but not an overwhelming amount. Team Captains are responsible for team registration and all League fees (registration fee and weekly payments), all of which is taken through the LeagueApps account. See Splitting payment fairly amongst players for a breakdown cost per person.

At registration, Captains create and name their team and then get the word out to potential players. Captains are the main point of contact between their team and our Venue League Hosts, and therefore need to keep an open line of communication leading up to, during, and shortly after the season. Captains are also expected to be able to manage their teammates if they are doing something that negatively affects our fun atmosphere.

A Great Team Captain:

  • Sends a registration link to potential players, the same URL where they created the team
  • Encourages a positive team spirit, even when losing
  • Sends weekly emails rallying their players and building excitement for the next games
  • Backs up the calls from Topgolf Associates
  • Is pro-active in settling disputes involving their team

How do I get my friends to register for my team?

There are two ways to do this:

  • If you have not created your team yet: You are able to invite players to join your team after your registration is completed. At the completion of registration there is the option to "Invite more players to your new team." Clicking this button will allow you to send an email and message to anyone you would like to add to your team. Simply add their e-mail address into the form and invite them to join your team.
  • If you have already created your team: You can still invite players by following these steps. Log into your account and select the Dashboard option. Select the "Manage or Add Players" option listed under the Role/Team section. To invite new players, click the button that says "Invite Players" in the right hand sidebar under Roster. Add their e-mail address into the form and invite them to join your team.


How do I see who has registered for my team?

Log into your account and select the Dashboard option. Select the "Manage or Add Players" option listed under the Role/Team section. To view your roster, click the button that says "Roster" in the right hand sidebar. From here you can also invite new players as well as see the status of all pending invites.


What happens after I register?

Once you register, you're a member of our community. You'll get a confirmation email right away. Shortly before the start of the season, we'll email you with all the information you need.

After you register, please add info@leagueapps.com to your email's address book. We send many emails with important season information, and sometimes they get pushed to spam folders.

All payments are made via our online registration pages. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We do not accept Amex, nor do we accept payment over the phone. Checks are only accepted for full-team payments issued by a company.

Registration pages include all pertinent season information: Registration deadline, game dates, location, price, link to rules, and any other information you need to know about the leagues.

Registration includes (for almost every league we offer): eight weeks of games, access to drink specials at our Post-Game Socials, team t-shirts, all necessary game equipment, online schedules and standings. Be sure to read all the season details on the registration form before signing.

Free Agents

How do Free Agents Work?
If you are an individual looking for a team then the Free Agent option is for you. Our aim is to find individuals a team in two ways. We create teams entirely composed of Free Agents or individuals join existing teams who are looking for more players to fill their roster. In either case, we will communicate with Free Agents and Teams to find the best solution.

Once you have been selected for a team, you will be provided with a total cost to play for the season, which will be payable in full prior beginning once you agree.

Weekly League Games and Format

How does the team format work?
Teams consist of a maximum of 8 players, with a minimum of 4 players needed to play weekly. Team captains have ownership in how they would like to have their teams play each week. Each week there will be two rounds played. Each round represents a specific Topgolf game: TopGolf, TopShot Rookie, TopChip, TopContender and TopPressure. All attending players are required to hit a minimum of 20 scoring shots each week.

Each round, excluding TopPressure*, will consist of 4 player cards with 20 balls per game. Teams will be able to split up these 80 balls how they see fit.

Here are our suggested ways to play with varying number of players within your team:

  • 4 players – Have each person play on their own player card for each round
  • 6 players – In Round 1, have all 6 players split 3 player cards with one remaining card available to be played as the team sees best for their overall score; repeat same process in Round 2
  • 8 players – In Round 1, have all 8 players split the 4 player cards, each player hitting 10 shots and then rotating with one another; repeat process in Round 2
    -or-
  • 8 players – In Round 1, have 4 players play a full game on the 4 player cards, each player hitting 20 shots; In Round 2, rotate in the 4 remaining players and have them play a full game for the remaining 4 games

*TopPressure will consist of 30 golf balls; if TopPressure is played only 3 games will be played in the Round


What does the season format look like?

The season is made up of 8 weekly leagues nights – 6 or 7 weeks of regular season, followed by 1 or 2 weeks of playoffs. The League format will be confirmed by week 1 of the regular season.


How does the scoring system work?

Teams will play stroke-play throughout the regular season; teams will be ranked at the end of the 7-week regular season based on total strokes gained throughout the course of the regular season. Teams will be ranked first to last from highest score to lowest score; two rounds of 4 games will be played weekly.


What does the weekly format look like?

A minimum of 4 players are needed to play weekly. Team Captains have ownership of how they would like to have their teams play each week. Each week there will be two rounds played and represented by a specific Topgolf game: TopGolf, TopShot Rookie, TopChip, TopContender and TopPressure. All attending players are required to hit a minimum of 20 scoring shots each week.

Each round, excluding TopPressure*, will consist of 4 player cards with 20 balls per game. Teams will be able to split up these 80 balls how they see fit.

A game rotation schedule for the entire regular season will be provided to every team prior to the start of Week 1.


What if our team is short of players for a game?

We understand that, despite your best efforts, registered players may not be able to attend every game. The great thing about our social leagues is the flexibility, so as long as your team has a minimum of 4 players you are good to go.

We do allow teams to bring substitute players; nobody likes a forfeit.


What if it is raining, snowing or generally miserable outside?

ALWAYS assume your game is on. We play through rain, snow, and less than optimal conditions to make sure all games are played as scheduled. Of course, in special circumstances — blizzards, lightning, alien takeover — we will postpone the games and inform you. When in doubt, contact us.
