FanBolt took a night off last week to check out Topgolf Atlanta, and we wanted to share our experience with you all!
If you’re not familiar with Topgolf, it’s a pretty unique facility. It offers competitive golf games for all ages and all skill sets (including the geek girls here at FanBolt who have never golfed before). Players hit golf balls which contain a computer microchip that tracks each shot’s accuracy and distance traveled. Points are awarded for hitting targets on the field, and you can actually see where every shot lands.
In addition to the game play, each Topgolf also offers an upscale experience complete with amazing food and beverages, music, games and climate controlled bays (they’ll be comfortable even during the winter!), not to mention hundreds of HDTVs. And if you want to get serious about your skills, Topgolf even offers lessons, leagues and tournaments. (To learn more about Topgolf, visit www.topgolf.com.)

FanBolt’s Topgolf Experience
A few members of our group had been to Topgolf before, but most of us were total newbies. However, by the end of the night -- Team FanBolt was just as obsessed with the gameplay as the seasoned players in our group! We even got a message from AMC’s Comic Book Men star Ming Chen (who saw our pictures on Instagram) mentioning that he wants to visit next time he’s in town!
Team FanBolt Attempts Golf… And Is Pretty Good At It
I really enjoyed the gameplay. You don’t have to be good at golf to be competitive at the game with your friends. I didn’t understand how that could be the case until we actually visited Topgolf, but it’s almost like bowling but for golf. The course holes are quite large, so the chances of making a “hole-in-one” is actually quite good!
You can check out the magic that is my golf form below. It needs a little work… but also goes to show you that every skill level can partake!
Aside from the gameplay, the food is amazing. From chicken and waffle sliders and two EPIC deserts (see the third photo below), to tasty cocktails and scrumptious appetizers (be sure to try the signature nachos), it doesn’t matter what you order, you can’t go wrong!

First Timer’s Club: Taking the fear out of your first time… at Topgolf
Topgolf created the First Timer’s Club to help newcomers overcome some of the hurdles that they encounter during their first time (at Topgolf, of course). Many people think the facility is only for golfers. I can safely say that none of the girls on Team FanBolt have ever played golf before, so we’re definitely not golfers. This was our first time, and we absolutely loved it.
We may have not had the form (as you saw above) or the skill that some of the guys had… but we would had stayed the rest of the night and kept playing if we could have.
Anyone new to Topgolf can join the First Timers Club now through October 31, 2015. By joining, you’ll receive a free Lifetime Membership and $10 off Game Play. Sign up at www.firsttimersclub.com!
