General FAQs

What is Topgolf?

In short, we’re a sports entertainment complex that features an inclusive, high-tech golf game that everyone can enjoy. Paired with an outstanding food and beverage menu, climate-controlled hitting bays and music, every Topgolf has an energetic hum that you can feel right when you walk through the door.

What health and safety measures are you implementing?

We are implementing new measures around Guest and Associate health and safety, and working with state and local health officials to ensure we are following reopening guidelines.

Facemask Requirements
In accordance with Local and State guidelines, Guests are required to wear facemasks at certain Topgolf venues. A list of those venues and requirements can be viewed here. Across all our venues, Guests are strongly encouraged to wear a facemask in all common areas.

Responsible Social Distancing
Six-foot social distancing markers will be displayed throughout common areas, along with a bay capacity limit of six people.

Safely-Spaced Hitting Bays
An outdoor and spacious experience for all Guests with protective bay dividers and 11 feet from tee to tee.

Highest Standard of Cleanliness
The entire venue is cleaned throughout the day and all common areas are regularly disinfected. Golf clubs, golf balls, game screens and other frequently touched bay surfaces will be disinfected between each group.

Associate Health and Safety
Every Associate is required to have a health check prior to starting work, wear a mask at all times and wear gloves while handling food and drink. Additionally, all Associates must follow frequent handwashing protocols, per CDC guidelines.

For additional frequently asked questions pertaining to our new health and safety measures, please visit topgolf.com/playsafely.

What makes Topgolf so high-tech?

Our patented technology allows you to track your golf ball and accurately score each shot based on the target it enters. Which also means we can’t get into the details of how it actually works.

Topgolf venues are also adding Toptracer technology, allowing you to see a real-time trace of your ball's flight path as well as insights into speed, distance, angle and accuracy. Basically, everything you’d ever want to know about your shot. Learn more and see which venues have Toptracer available here.

Are you open on (insert holiday)?

We are open every holiday except Thanksgiving and Christmas. So yes, we’re open on Groundhog’s Day and Flag Day.

How much does it cost?

That depends on your venue, so please refer to your venue’s page at topgolf.com/locations for specific details. Keep in mind, our pricing is by the bay per hour, not per person. That makes all the difference.

How many people can play at once?

Up to 6 people can be in a bay and play. For safety reasons, only one person can be hitting at one time.

Are there any age restrictions?

Anyone under 16 must be supervised by a Guest 21+ at all times. Anyone under 18 must be supervised by a Guest 21+ after 9:00pm.

What are your rules?

At Topgolf, everyone’s safety is very important. Combining a few laughs, great food, and hours of Topgolf can create some epic memories. So for all parties involved, and we do mean parties, please follow these safety rules:

  • Obey all verbal and posted rules and instructions. Use common sense to protect yourself and others.
  • All players must hit from the mat at all times. No running starts (we all loved that movie too...)
  • Only the person hitting a ball should stand beyond the red line. All other players should stand behind the red line at all times. Players are responsible for the safety of others around them and should always check their surroundings before swinging a club.
  • Aim for the targets at all times - how else are you going to score? Hitting golf balls over the boundary netting is prohibited, and all players are responsible for damages or injuries caused by any balls hit outside of the premises. (Topgolf balls report back to us when they’ve lost their way outside our nets…)
  • Throwing golf balls is prohibited.
  • Any Guest under 16, or under 18 after 9pm, must always be supervised by a Guest over 21.
  • Players must stay behind the yellow line at all times. Please take extra care when playing from upstairs bays.
  • Topgolf is not responsible for lost or stolen items

Reservations & Events

Do you take reservations?

We sure do! You can reserve a bay (for 1-6 people) or book multiple bays (for 7+ people), ahead of time at any of our U.S. venues. Options available vary by venue, so click below to start planning, check availability and view pricing.

Feeling spontaneous? Walk-in Guests are always welcome, so come on in.

Are reservations required?

Nope! Walk-in Guests are always welcome, so come on in.

Can I reserve a bay over the phone?

Our team is unable to take reservations over the phone. BUT we’ve made reserving a bay much simpler than talking to a human being. Our online booking tool lets you check availability and reserve any open time slot in just a few clicks.

How far in advance can I book?

Reserve 1 Bay (for 1-6 people): Up to 7 days in advance*. Time slots become available at 6 a.m. local time 7 days out, so don't be alarmed if you check at midnight and don't see any availability yet! Set that alarm if you're anxious and be the first to snag a bay.

Book 2+ Bays (for 7+ people): You can book a day, weeks or even months in advance!

Click below to start planning, check availability and view pricing.

*May vary by venue

Reservations are sold out online - can I still make one?

We only allocate a portion of our bays to Reservations, and all reservation bay availability is published online 7 days in advance. If showing sold out online, unfortunately that means no additional reservations are available on that date/time. Walk-in's are always welcome though, so come on in!

Pro tip: reservations become available at 6 a.m. local time 7 days out, so don't be alarmed if you check at midnight and don't see any availability yet! Set that alarm if you're anxious and be the first to snag a bay. Also note, if a guest with a reservation cancels, that reservation bay is added back into online inventory and becomes available for a new guest to snag.

Can I use a Gift Card to pay for my reservation or event?

At this time, gift cards cannot be used to pay in advance for reservations or deposits for events. (We know, a pain - we're working on it!) Your gift card CAN be used for purchases within the venue on the day of your visit such as for food and drinks, so be sure to bring it with you!

I need to plan an event. Can you help me?

Every morning our Event Sales Associates wake up and can't wait to help you put on an awesome event. Events at Topgolf start with a minimum of 7 people (2+ bays), so if that's what you're looking for, head over to topgolf.com/events to start planning your epic outing.

What do you do for birthdays?

We’ll do whatever you want to make that day even more special. Whether you want a big party or a small gathering, it’s your day and we’re here to help. To get the ball rolling, head over to topgolf.com/events.

Can I bring a cake?

If that will make your experience sweeter, then heck yeah! We require that all cakes be store-bought with clearly-labeled ingredients in case of allergies because we care about the safety and well-being of all our Guests. Please note we cannot store your cake - the only exception is ice cream cake which we can store temporarily in our freezer as long as it is in a covered/sealed container.

What is a Platinum membership?

A Platinum Membership includes unlimited play for up to six players during platinum hours and priority access to jump to the top of the wait list at any time at Topgolf -- even during our most popular times. See all Platinum membership perks here.

Clubs

How much does it cost to rent clubs?

Zero dollars. Free. Nothing. All our clubs are complimentary to use during game play. We have clubs for men, ladies, left-handers, right-handers, kids, and toddlers for your convenience. Men’s and women’s clubs are already in each bay.

Can I bring my own clubs?

If you’re more comfortable playing with your own clubs, we have designated areas within our bays to store them. We will also store your clubs in our club room if we happen to be on a wait so that you can enjoy our venue without lugging them around.

Venue

Do you close due to weather?

Unless it’s an extreme weather event, nothing can stop a good time at Topgolf. Our venues are all-weather facilities with hitting bays fitted with fans for the summer and heaters for the winter.

Do you guys serve alcohol and food?

Do we ever! Each Topgolf venue has a full bar with local brews to classic cocktails and a chef-driven menu led by an accomplished Executive Chef. With shareable portions and fresh, high-quality ingredients, you'll find the food and drinks as enjoyable as the games. Once in a bay, our Bay Hosts are happy to get all the eats and sips you want while you play.

Topgolf reserves the right not to serve alcohol to any Guest under 21, even if state law allows service in the presence of a parent or guardian.

Do you guys have an area for kids?

At most of our venues, we have complimentary Xbox, shuffleboard, foosball and games on the terrace. KidZone is not an actual area within the venue but a club that puts on academies in the spring, summer and fall to help better your child’s game. To enroll in one, check out topgolf.com/kidzone.

Do you have parking?

Yes, we have general parking. And if you don’t want to park your own car, we have valet parking at some venues. And if you don’t want to drive your own car to Topgolf, we have promo codes through our partnership with Lyft. We’ve got you covered no matter how you want to get here.
