St. Pete's first Topgolf is officially open in full swing! The modern golf entertainment giant announced that Friday, June 30, will be its official Grand Opening at 220 Carillon Parkway North. Reservations are available now, but bays are already available for walk-ins until then. Never been to a Topgolf venue? Think of it as a modern golf experience where anyone – including people who have never picked up a golf club and those who want to perfect their swing – can participate in the sport in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. You'll take aim at giant targets on the field while playing virtual courses or Topgolf's signature games like Angry Birds and so you know, Topgolf celebrates the bad shots just as much as the beautiful swings.
Topgolf St. Petersburg will have 102 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays spanning three levels. Each bay has lounge-type furniture or high-top tables where groups can cheer on or heckle the other players. The games are designed to be enjoyed by both long-time golfers and first-timers alike, ranging from driving competitions to short chipping challenges.
Of course, the golf is only part of the fun at Topgolf. From each bay, guests can order from the full and extensive menu of tasty food and drinks, and trust us when we say this isn’t your average bar food. The heaping dishes of fresh-made snacks, sandwiches and meals are stars in their own right. Inside the building is a state-of-the-art sports bar and restaurant where anyone can enjoy catching a game on one of the 200 HDTVs while enjoying food and drink. There is also a rooftop terrace with fire pits, music and year-round family-friendly programming are just as much a part of the Topgolf experience.
