My kids are taking me tomorrow for my birthday. I’m not sure what to expect, but hopefully we have a good time. 

You’ll have a good time. It’s fun. It’s just not a practice range.

I've read it can be fun.....the most negative feedbacks I've read is that it's quite expensive....good thing is the kids are paying😆...have fun and Happty Bday!

Was on vacation with the family last year right outside of DC and went to the Alexandria one with my wife, son (5 at the time) and daughter (3 at the time.)

 

I agree, don't expect it to match anything close to REAL golf but it's still fun to get some swings in with people that don't usually play. This one sloped to the short targets so when my kids and wife were topping shit they still felt good getting points. Meanwhile, I was getting pissed when I barely miss the target at 150 and losing lol.

 

I liked the food and atmosphere. Did NOT like the rental clubs. Would probably bring a few of my own if I were to go to one again.

It was pretty fun. My high score was 176. I could pepper the 100 yard target all day, but I got dialed into the blue target and ran up the score pretty good.

Going there with my old coworkers, I can definitely confirm this.

The second time I went I brought a wedge, 7 iron, and 4 iron. This made it much more enjoyable.

You to take the driver too. It’s fun smashing balls to the end of the range.

I wouldn't take my driver. IIRC the tee is a little on the low side.

You definitely have to have a different mind set when going to TopGolf.  Don't think of it as a driving range but rather a completely different game.  

One thing I did not like is the amount of time we had to wait for a bay to open up.  Almost an hour.  This was about a 3-4 years ago and have not gone back since.

I figure I better get used to hitting the Big D off the turf when they outlaw tees. 😉

The tees were useless. Too low for a driver and too high for a 3W or iron.

I have a mini driver that would be perfect now that I think about it.

My thoughts exactly. No need to go for the farthest targets.

I feel this completely. They offer reservations but IIRC its 25 bucks to reserve a bay, and that DOESN'T go towards your time. It's a full on extra charge.

Enjoy unlimited Topgolf game play for up to six people through Sept. 30, weekdays until 5 PM.

Thinking about getting this. I could get some practice in while having lunch occasionally during the week and be able to entertain clients and stuff.

That is actually a pretty slick deal if you have weekday time and clients to entertain. Put it on the company card, I say.

I can certainly make the time. TopGolf is 5 minutes from my house and in a central location for all my job sites, so I’m usually near it at least two or three times a week.

As far as clients, that’s just a bonus perk. I think I can get plenty of value out of the promotion just going by myself. I’ll have to call them and make sure that they have decent availability during the week where I can just show up anytime and be able to get a bay. My work isn’t structured enough to where I’d be able to plan going ahead of time and make reservations, and I’m also unlikely to be able to plan my work day around a TopGolf reservation.

I'm sure that during most days they don't have a lot of traffic. More of a nighttime/weekend spot (at least the one in West Chester, just north of Cinci).

Beer selection good. Food bad. I've been twice here in Pittsburgh. I had fun both times, but don't expect an actual accurate golf competition. If you don't care about the accuracy part actually being judged, and just want to relax, good night out.

I've been to the one in Vegas and it's fun for what it is. There is one here in the Twin Cities so I'm sure I'll try it again at some point.
