New menu introduced at Top Golf

This press release showed up in my inbox and I had to share. I first wrote about Top Golf for a travel article I wrote for a regional newspaper a couple years ago. My golf experience is limited to the miniature courses, but I instantly loved the concept of this place. It is technology meets the sport of golf, using balls equipped with microchips to help you measure the progress of your practice. It also bring the social aspect to golfing, allowing it to be an activity mixed with good food and drink and creating a fun outing for family or friends. Top Golf has introduced some new menu items, so I wanted to share them. Take a look:

“We are excited to introduce a fun and more diverse menu, adapting to our surroundings as we expand to new cities with different palates and food trends,” said Executive Chef Mark Boyton. “We consulted with a group of regular TopGolf patrons on what they would like to see on the menu.

About TopGolf:TopGolf is a revolutionary sports entertainment complex, perfect for any occasion, event or private party. The idea for TopGolf was born by two brothers on a driving range in London. Bored of the repetition of hitting shot after shot, they wanted to find out how far their drives really went, and how close to the pin their shots landed. And so, the concept for TopGolf began. Each golf ball contains a computer microchip that tracks your shots accuracy and distance, while awarding points for hitting targets ranging from 20 - 250 yards away. Thanks to innovative golf games, a fun atmosphere and a great food and drink menu, TopGolf is far from the average bar or golf complex. 

TopGolf has four locations in the U.S. (Wood Dale, IL, Alexandria, VA, Dallas and Allen, Texas) and three in the UK (Chigwell, Essex, Addlestone, Surrey and Watford, Herts).  With two more locations scheduled to open in the United States in 2012, TopGolf continues to cement itself as the golf entertainment destination.
