Topgolf – Mount Laurel, NJ
(The following is a special series on Bluejeanfood.com written by guest contributing writer and correspondent for “Small Bites Radio” William Knowles. He highlights his passions of trying something new whenever the opportunity presents itself, or possibly something old, but new again since it has been a while. I hope you enjoy his very special perspective that I am sure many of you can relate to. Follow him on his exciting journey “Around Town”)
Topgolf has recently taken the country, and world, by storm. With a number of locations sprouting up all over the land, this concept of dining, entertainment and driving range-style play has become a popular alternative to traditional sports outings and gatherings. A new location, the 48th in all, is opening in our area on Friday, October 5th, in Mount Laurel, NJ. I had the opportunity to tour the beautiful facility at a gathering held this past week…
The mission of Topgolf is to provide fun entertainment for your family, for your business gatherings, and just the everyday person who is looking to sharpen their skills. Through technology that has been developed using microchipped balls, golfers hitting in the range can keep track of their accuracy and distance via TV screens set up in their bay. Whether you’re a novice or expert, adult or child, the spirit of Topgolf is have to fun, and hopefully sharpen your skills all the while.
To amplify the enjoyment of your outing, a large and varied menu offers dining selections specially created by a chef, along with several fully stocked bars with top shelf beverages. The bays can be privately enclosed for you and your group, and big screen TV’s are present throughout so you can catch all the big game action. Other leisure offerings are available, such as a billiard room and table soccer. Simulator lounges allow you to experience all that technology has to offer to improve your game. And if you’re looking for a unique spot for your business needs, Topgolf offers private conference rooms that are fully modernized for your meeting requirements.
The gorgeous, three floor, 65,000 foot facility (located right off exit 40B on Interstate 295) is quite an achievement. The site has more than 500 full and part time employees, all working to make your experience special. I had the chance to meet many of the folks, who were warm and accommodating; resident experts are there to also help you grow your golf game (something I need lots of help on!). It’s a facility and concept that most everyone should be proud to be associated with, and will without question receive a rave reception once it opens its doors this Friday.
Whether you’re out for business, personal pleasure, or to party with your friends, Topgolf will be a top go to spot once you’ve had the chance to experience it. I will see you on the driving range, and again “around town”…
