League Rules and Format
How long is the Leagues season?
Topgolf Leagues follow an 8 week format - 6 weeks of regular season play and 2 weeks of playoffs.
All teams will make the playoffs. Regular season standings are used to determine seeding for the playoff portion for League play.
How does League Play work?
4-6 PERSON TEAM FORMAT
The 4-6 Person Format is a points based format. Teams play 2-3 predetermined games per week and attempt to score as many points as possible.
The team score for each game is the sum of the 4 highest scores - the remaining scores are dropped.
Each team’s weekly score is the sum of their game scores for the week. A weekly game schedule for the season will be provided at the start of the season by the Topgolf Leagues team.
How are League standings determined?
4-6 PERSON TEAM FORMAT
The number of cumulative points scored by each team will determine the overall standings.
Standings are used at the end of the season to determine playoff seeding. All teams will qualify for League Playoffs.
Can I have substitutes on my team?
Substitutes for League play are allowed, but must be signed up on the team roster online.
4-6 PERSON TEAM FORMAT
You may have 2 substitutes on your roster, but each team must have at least 4 players - but no more than 6 players - to compete each week.
Any team with less than the minimum amount of players for a week will only be able to take scores for the amount of players present. Only players registered on a team's online roster that have played in one week of the regular season may play in the Playoffs.
I hit a ball into a target, but it didn't score. What can I do?
In the event a ball fails to score, we will be using the following Ball Edit Policy.
4-6 PERSON TEAM FORMAT
Any ball that enters a target but fails to read is to be edited into the outside ring of a target.
Any teams found to be editing balls to increase their scores may be removed from playoff contention at the discretion of the Leagues team. A warning must be issued prior to removal.
What happens if my team has to miss a game?
Make-ups are allowed for regular season play in Topgolf Leagues, but are not allowed under any circumstance for Topgolf Leagues Playoffs.
If you know your team cannot make a regular season week, contact your venue team in advance to schedule a make-up. Make-ups must be completed prior to the date of play that will be missed - make-ups will be supervised by a Topgolf Associate.
Can we still play if we arrive late?
Yes, but your team must finish all game play by 10:00pm.
4-6 PERSON TEAM FORMAT
Week 1: Teams must complete scheduled game play by 10:00pm.
Week 2: Four players from each team must arrive no later than 7:30pm. Teams without four players present will forfeit their game(s).
What happens if there is a tie in the Playoffs?
In the event of a tie, teams will play a sudden-death shot in the game of Topgolf. Only one player from each team will be allowed to take a shot. Teams will flip a coin to see who will hit first. Once the tie is broken, the team with the highest score will be declared the winning team.
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, 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 proactive in settling disputes involving their 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.
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.

Splitting payment fairly amongst players
If players are equally splitting league fees, this acts as a guide for Team Captains when collecting fees from players.
4-6 Person Team Format
|Number of Players||Playing fee ($70 per week)|
Note - Prices stated do not include State Taxes.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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, all necessary game equipment, online schedules and standings. Be sure to read all the season details on the registration form before signing.
Are there any age restrictions to Topgolf Leagues?
Yes. Players must be 18 years and older.
Can I pay using a Topgolf Gift Card?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept any gift cards for payment at this present time. We have partnered with LeagueApps to support the League program, and we do not have the ability to process gift cards through the LeagueApps platform. Not to worry, you can use your Topgolf gift card for at the venue; perhaps a victory round for the team?!
Do you offer Corporate Teams?
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 below under "How do I get my friends to register for my team?"). If you need to use an alternate payment method, please contact your Topgolf venue.
What if I can't fill my team? 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. Specific to the 4-6 person team - The more players (6 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.
What if it's 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.
What is the cancellation and refund policy?
Topgolf accepts cancellation requests for Leagues, with a full refund given, up to 48 hours prior to Leagues beginning, after which date all payments are final. Refunds will be credited to your account within approximately 5-10 business days after the date on which the refund was initiated. If a League season is cancelled by Topgolf for reasons outside of its control, such as a pandemic, a pro-rated refund for the portion of League play remaining will be administered to the designated Team Captain via a digital Topgolf Gift Card.
