I was immediately impressed when I walked into Topgolf’s Scottsdale location – it looked more like a lounge than a driving range. After checking-in, we were able to grab a drink at the bar while we waited for our Bay. Once our bay was ready and we started playing, I realized why Topgolf is becoming so popular… they make the experience enjoy able for everyone – beginners and pros alike.
When you hit the ball, you start playing a point-scoring golf game. The 240-yard outfield has several dartboard-like targets in the ground. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls, the more points you receive. So whether you are a beginner and your balls are rolling in by chance or you’re a pro who is trying to hit precise shots, its great for everyone.
We started playing during the day and kept playing into the night. Once the sun set, all the targets lit up which was another cool element. The Scottsdale location is located across from Talking Stick Resort which also lights up at night.
