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.
Our patented technology allows you to track your golf ball and accurately score each shot based on the target it hits. 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 games are available here.
We’ll answer this question with a question—how do YOU play?! At Topgolf, our games and tech mean no two visits are the same. You can invite your regular golf foursome for a fun evening or your family for a party. Just know that our games require you to swing the club and hit the ball into the outﬁeld.
Prices depend on your venue, so please refer to your venue’s page at topgolf.com/locations for specific details on the price of game play. Keep in mind, our pricing is by the bay per hour, not per person. That makes all the difference.
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.
Our bays comfortably accommodate 6 people with a max of 6 playing the game, but up to 8 people can be in a bay. For safety reasons, only one person can be hitting at one time.
Heck no! Topgolf is a game that anyone can play and enjoy, even if you’re getting more hole-in-nones than hole-in-ones. If your swing has more “room for improvement” than you’d like, we offer lessons and classes.
Is it ever! Each Topgolf venue has a full restaurant and 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 Bayhosts 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.
Topgolf invites everyone to Come Play Around, and we pride ourselves on creating a safe, fun, welcoming place for all. Kids are welcome!
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.
At Topgolf, everyone's well-being is very important. We are committed to providing an excellent experience in a welcoming and inclusive environment so we can have fun together. 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 our code of conduct:
- We are committed to providing a positive experience for all our Guests and we do not tolerate any acts of racism, violence or discrimination.
- 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.
- Topgolf is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Thank you for being courteous and respectful to all Guests & Associates while enjoying your time at Topgolf.
At Topgolf, safety has been and remains our #1 priority. We are committed to maintaining a clean, welcoming and fun environment to keep our Guests and Associates healthy and safe.
Since introducing our Commitment to Play Safely, we’ve followed guidance from the CDC and remained in compliance with any state and local government mandates – and we’ll continue to do that now and moving forward. With this in mind, Topgolf no longer requires Guests to wear a mask in our venues, except where required by state or local laws or regulations. A list of venues that still require facemasks to be worn can be viewed here.
Safely-Spaced Hitting Bays
An outdoor and spacious experience for all Guests with 11 feet from tee to tee.

For additional frequently asked questions pertaining to our health and safety measures, please visit topgolf.com/playsafely.
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.
At Topgolf Waco we have ample space for the family to enjoy with complimentary games in the yard and pavilion. Our mini golf course is fun for all ages, and is free for ages 3 and under!
We are open every holiday except Thanksgiving and Christmas. So yes, we’re open on Groundhog’s Day and Flag Day.
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, get a ride with our partner Lyft. We’ve got you covered no matter how you want to get here.
Unless it’s an extreme weather event, nothing can stop a good time at Topgolf, not even rain or snow. Our venues are all-weather facilities with covered hitting bays that are fitted with fans for the summer and heaters for the winter.
Topgolf is a pet-free venue - this includes dogs, pets, therapy and emotional support or comfort animals. The only exception is for service animals aiding a Guest with a disability.
Technically, we do not have a formal/golf dress code. Fashion is a fun way of expressing yourself, and it wouldn’t be cool of us to hinder that. Just keep in mind, we’re still a public establishment.
As long as you’re wearing shoes, you’re good to play! You can wear golf shoes if you want, but they aren’t required—if you do, no metal spikes please (also, where did you find metal spikes?!).
You absolutely can! Thanks to our Toptracer tech, we’re a great place to work on your game or just play a few games. Thanks to our unmatched vibe, you can also eat, drink, and watch the game too.
Topgolf is the home of play but not the home of medical professionals. If you have concerns about your ability to play our games, we suggest you speak with your doctor before visiting. But golf and our version of it is pretty low impact!
Yes! Every level at Topgolf is wheelchair accessible. You can also ask your Bayhost to get you an ADA hitting mat and tee. Elevators are available in multi-level venues, and our hitting bays are large enough to allow you to play in a wheelchair comfortably.
We do not allow smoking or vaping inside the building or on the teeline.
Only small flash photography cameras, point-and-shoot cameras, and cell phones will be allowed for filming at our venues, but no professional lenses or lenses over 3" are permitted. A gimble to stabilize the phone/camera is fine. No drones or audio recorders allowed.
If a professional filming crew or a bigger camera(s) is being brought into the venue, please send your filming request to firstname.lastname@example.org a minimum of five business days in advanced for review.
NOTE: We do not allow drones or GoPros attached to any Topgolf property.
Topgolf does not allow weapons of any kind, including the concealed carry of guns, in any venue. You’ll find state-specific signage near the front entry door.
For those who like to plan ahead, we sure do! You can reserve a bay (for 1-6 people) up to 7 days in advance, or two bays (for 7-12 people) up to 14 days in advance at Topgolf Waco, inclusive of 2 hours of game play. You can also book an Event for two or more bays (7+ people), inclusive of game play and food and beverage, several weeks in advance. Click below to start planning, check availability and view pricing.
Feeling spontaneous? Walk-in Guests are always welcome, so come on in. That said, we highly recommend booking in advance if you need two or more bays to guarantee they'll be side-by-side for maximum fun. Or you can join the waitlist for Topgolf Waco from anywhere on the day of your visit -- exclusively through the Topgolf App.
Nope! Walk-in Guests are always welcome, so come on in. That said, if visiting with 7+ people, we highly recommend booking in advance as getting 2 bays side-by-side is very difficult to accommodate for walk-in's - especially during peak times. Or you can join the waitlist for Topgolf Waco from anywhere on the day of your visit -- exclusively through the Topgolf App.
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.
Our 1 and 2 bay reservations include 2 hours of game play in a hitting bay that will be ready for you at your reserved time. Food & beverage and Lifetime Memberships are not included in these packages.

Reserve 1 or 2 Bays + Game Play: You can reserve a bay (for 1-6 people) up to 7 days in advance, or two bays (for 7-12 people) up to 14 days in advance, inclusive of 2 hours of game play. Initial allotment of reservation time slots become available at 6 a.m. local time 7 or 14 days out, so don't be alarmed if you check at midnight and don't see any availability yet!

Book an Event for 2+ Bays + Game Play + Food & Beverage: You can book a day, weeks or even months in advance!
Click below to start planning, check availability and view pricing.
We only allocate a portion of our bays to 1 and 2 bay Reservations, and all reservation bay availability is published online. If showing sold out online, unfortunately that means no additional reservations are currently available on that date/time. Check back as additional reservations may become available closer to your desired visit date. Walk-in's are always welcome though, so come on in!
1 or 2 Bay Reservation: You can! Gift cards can be redeemed online at checkout when reserving 1 or 2 bays at Topgolf Waco.

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.

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.
We will be holding the bay for you at your scheduled time, so your game time will start at the start time of your booking. For example, if you book a bay for 2pm-4pm, your time will start at 2pm. We recommend arriving at least 10-15 minutes prior to your booking to check-in, so we can take you to your bay right on schedule and you can maximize your fun.
Your two hours of game play will start at the time you've reserved, so please give yourself some buffer time for travel and plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to ensure you receive your full game play time. If you are late, game time will be deducted accordingly without refund, as we are holding the bay for you. Please note that you must be present in bay no later than 15 minutes after your booking start time or Topgolf reserves the right to release your bay.
1 and 2 bay Reservations (game play only packages)
You can cancel by clicking the "cancel booking" link in your confirmation email. A full refund of your deposit will be provided if cancelled at least 24 hours prior to your start time. Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior will not be refunded - the 50% deposit made at the time of booking will be forfeited.
If you cancelled more than 24 hours prior to your reservation and you used a credit/debit card to pay for your deposit, your refund will be appear on the statement of your original method of payment within 3-5 business days. If you used a Topgolf Gift Card, the amount paid via your Gift Card will not be added back to the original Gift Card. A new Topgolf eGift Card will be sent to the email address of the purchaser on file, within 5-7 business days, for the amount refunded. Please note, the new eGift Card will come from the sender “CashStar”, not from Topgolf.
2+ Bay Events (package you booked includes game play and Food & Beverage)
Please reference your event agreement for our cancellation policy and contact your event sales representative to cancel.
No, game time cannot be extended for Reservations or Events as the bay needs to be made available for the booking that follows yours. We want to ensure you get to your bay right on time, and that the group coming in after you does as well. All Reservations and Events that are bookable online include 2 hours of game play. If you have 6 or less people and want the ultimate flexibility to decide in the moment how long you want to play for, we do hold a portion of our bays for walk-in guests so you’re more than welcome to come on in and play until your heart desires. If you want to play more than two hours and have 7 or more people in your group (2+ bays), our events team can set up the event for you with the amount of game time you desire in advance.
1 and 2 bay Reservations (game play only packages): cannot be modified, unfortunately. It's a limitation of our booking system (we're working on it!) If you need to change the time or date, or # of bays, please first book a new reservation at your preferred time/date, and then cancel your original reservation. Just be sure to do this more than 24 hours prior to your original booking so you can cancel via the link in your confirmation email for a full refund.
2 bay Event (package you booked includes game play and Food & Beverage): Please contact our events team at (254) 379-9210. Please note: our events team does not have the ability to modify or cancel 1 or 2 bay reservations (game play only bookings), so please contact our Guest Care Team at (254) 379-9210 for inquiries surrounding those.

Topgolf originated from the timeless golf question, "Who hit it closer?" Originally called "Target Oriented Practice Golf," the founders of Topgolf used proprietary radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and dartboard-style targets to answer this question, and the first Topgolf venue was created in Watford in the United Kingdom in 2000.
Over the next 20+ years, Topgolf would become a movement opening new venues, constantly innovating to improve the guest experience, and expanding experiential platforms to create a global community.
You can play one of our many golf games, enjoy some of our tasty handcrafted foods, watch the game in our bar area, shop for cool merch—you get the point! Your Topgolf experience is truly up to you, and we have plenty to keep you busy.
Topgolf is both outside and inside, but you’ll never be exposed to the elements. Each of our hitting bays is covered, oﬀers overhead heating, and good protection from weather of all kinds. You can Come Play Around in nearly any hot, cold, wet, or snowy condition. It’s up to you.
You bet! You’re completely covered, and we have heaters above you if it gets chilly.
Our Toptracer ball tracing tech takes your play experience to another level and is available at many venues, but not every venue just yet. You can see if a specific venue has Toptracer on our locations page.
We are always looking for new places to bring joy with our unique style of play – be sure to check out our press page for all the latest updates on our new venue openings and new location announcements.
