If you’re seeking your next family or group outing, date night, or event space, look no further than TopGolf. This popular hangout spot is excellent for enjoying tasty food and drinks while letting your competitive side out.
TopGolf stands out amongst other facilities because instead of playing on a traditional course or putting on the green, you have 15 game-style golfing options ranging from beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels.
In the signature TopGolf, players score points by hitting and aiming for targets using microchipped balls. The more accurate and farther your shot, the more points you earn.
Intermediate games feature team, individual accuracy, and virtual games. Your group can play TopScramble and have beginner players go against more experienced players to hit the best shot. Or groups can play accuracy games where the objective is to hit specific targets in a cluster or at correlated distances.
The advanced games feature TopDrive, where you aim for the farthest target at 185 yards or the trench for 215 yards. Or try Closest to the Hole, where each player is given 9 approach shots on famous courses. Distances from the pin are totaled, so the lowest score wins like traditional golf. Remember that the hits that land in the rough or hazard zones are penalized, so do your best!
The drink menu at TopGolf is extensive and features local beer fan favorites, traditional drafts, bottles and cans, wine, cocktails, zero-proof, and non-alcoholic drinks.
Under the cocktail list, there are tequila-specific options, which consist of margaritas and a Paloma, or signature cocktails, which include a Strawberry Hendrick’s Mule and a TopGolf Tea. Plus, GolfBags, which are drinks for 2 and have a take-home mug.
For zero-proof and non-alcoholic, get creative and try one of the mocktails, the Skinny Blueberry No-Jito or Blackberry Lemon Sparkler, or a Dirty Soda, either a Dirty Dr. Pepper or Strawberries & Cream Soda.
When you or your group get hungry, indulge in the Cheesy Macaroni Bites, Nacho Average Nachos, or Warm Pretzel bites for a starter.
Then, move to a Fried Chicken Heat-Wich or Smokehouse Burger, served with your choice of fries, tater tots, or a side salad.
Hopefully, you have room for dessert and order TopGolf’s famous Injectable Donuts. The Cinnamon-sugar-dusted donut holes are served with your choice of 2 flavors: chocolate, raspberry jelly, and Bavarian cream.
If you have an early morning or brunch tee time, TG serves mimosas, bloody marys, a breakfast burrito, and a chicken & biscuit sandwich.
TopGolf Scottsdale has 3 floors for golf practice or games, a rooftop terrace with fire pits, and 100+ all-weather bays for seasonal entertainment.
