I took my grandchildren and family out to the new Topgolf Scottsdale at Riverwalk. I really scored some points…the kids said that they had the best time and that I am an awesome grandmother! The idea for Topgolf came about when two guys who were bored going to the traditional driving range decided to take the game to another level. It almost reminds me of bowling, where you can rent your own lane and play games against each other.
A one-time membership costs $5 and includes free club rentals. To save time before you go, register online. The price for a bay depends on the time of day, ranging from $25 to $45 an hour (up to six players). Your host will show you how everything works, and after signing up all the players you can choose from a variety of games. Each ball contains a microchip that records where it lands. You get points for how far you hit the ball and how close you get it to the target.
The hitting bays have cooling fans and heaters, so you can play all year long. You can also order some delicious food and drinks to enjoy while you are playing. Topgolf has a large bar and patio, and on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights you can hear live music. This is truly a fun place to bring the family or friends!
