Is Top Golf worth the money?

The snow is finally here in DC. I wanted to practice this weekend.

I have never stepped foot in a top golf. $40 gives you $50 worth of games, but the site doesn’t explain how much a game costs. Any help would be appreciated!

I go to top golf quite a bit, if you are military/fire dept/police each game consisting of 20 balls is 5.75, if not, the cost per game is 7 dollars. The bays are heated and the food/drinks are better than bar food and reasonably prices. I love top golf, I can sit for hours and watch tv as they have them in every bay, hit some balls, grab some queso and chips and just have fun.

I forgot to say its nice to go with non-golfers as the rental clubs are free to use, and they have women's, men's, and kids for lefties and righties.

I've hit theTop Golf in NOVA a few times with some friends who live in the area.  If we go, it's usually because our wives our attending a shower of some sorts or some other event that does not allow us time for a full round of golf.  Top Golf is a nice alternative since we can still hit some balls while eating and having a few beers.  It's fun and something different, but I don't see myself going there all the time if I lived nearby.

Worth it for practicing golf, no.  Worth it for causal drinks, a new twist on happy hour, convincing your wife/gf/non-golf friends that golf can be fun, then yes.  It's a fun commodity, but you really should look at it more as a bar with one really big video game attraction.  If you are looking to hit balls and improve, it will offer minimal returns and your money would be better spent at a normal range.  But it is a ton of fun, and a great way to introduce new people to the game.

i was in houston for work and passed top golf and wished my hometown had a top golf, but $7 for 20 balls, no thanks. guess its more fo a social game atmosphere than somewhere to go and get some practice.

I love Top Golf..   Yes, I'd rather hit the driving range to practice, but during the frigid Chicago winters, it's the only place to watch the ball fly more than 90 yards..  The heaters make it plenty warm where I'm comfortable in January in Jeans and a T-shirt..  

Yes, it's a little pricer, but the more games you redeem at one time, the cheaper it is per game..   so get 3-4-5 games when you go to make it a better value.

And yeah..  I usually make it a 2-3 hour event with friends, and we can kick back a few beers, and shoot the proverbial s***...

Also, check for daily specials.  There are many times I go to the one here, and get 100 balls (5 games) for $15..   they have daily specials like this.

Go to hilltop golf.  Heated bays, usually quiet and its like 13 bucks for 100 balls I think.  Top Golf is great but I refuse to pay that much $.

Hilltop and Oak Mar both have heated bays in the NoVA area for much much less.  I'm sure there are others but those are the two I have used.

That's only if you go once, and don't average it out.

It's more like $4 for 20 balls.  But..  you're getting more value than just the driving range beating balls.

top golf is more about going for a couple of beers and hanging out with your friends than anything else. its a little pricey. i certainly wouldnt go there to practice other than the free sandbunker out back.

To me, top golf is basically best thought of as golf meets bowling.   You play against your friends, gain points each turn, joke around with each other when its not your turn to hit.  I would never use it for practice or game improvement but if you have a few golf buddies it is a good way to hit a few balls in a laid back, fun game setting that is different from on-course.

TopGolf is great, but it is certainly not a practice substitute.

It's best for grabbing a drink or two with a co-worker, taking your wife/GF and introducing her to golf, and in some cases a good reason to get off the beltway when there is serious traffic.
