How to Play

Players can score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at a giant dartboard target on an outfield. The closer you get to the center, and the further the distance, the more points participants earn. You don’t have to be a golfer to have fun at Topgolf! Players can play solo or in a group setting with up to 6 people.

The History

Topgolf, the brainchild of two brothers, Steve and Dave Jolliffe, opened the first venue in Watford, England, in 2000. The business has met with incredible success, with the average franchise earning roughly $21 million a year—half of the revenue from food and drinks and the other half made from the Topgolf bays.

In 2005, the U.S. company WestRiver, founded by Erik Anderson, brought Topgolf to the United States. Anderson and his team see the company more as a creative venture than a service company. As the company grew, Callaway Golf Company became an investor, and in 2008 it was incorporated Topgolf International. In addition, Topgolf currently has 28 U.S. locations, with over 70 worldwide in countries like the U.K. Australia, Mexico, and Dubai.
