Golfers don’t need to jockey for a spot at the driving range. Visitors can book their pod in advance online. They also offer summer golf academies for kids, if your little one is looking to perfect their form, or just enjoy the game.

Topgolf offers a deep list of food options, as well as wines, beers and cocktails. And seriously, you haven’t brunched until at Topgolf.
