Get Your Game On

Playing golf at TopGolf

Whether you want to sharpen your driving skills in a state-of-the-art golf range or play point-scoring games for fun with friends, Topgolf Alpharetta is a must. Feeling like a pro? Bring your own clubs, or if you’re new to the game, use the clubs provided in the climate-controlled bays. Pay for the bay by the hour and hit as many balls as possible within the hour. And it’s easy to extend your time at the in-bay computer screens if you want to keep playing! We recommend making a reservation for your bay to shorten your wait time for play time!

For a “twist” on golf and great cocktails, check out Dave & Buster’s or Main Event. Play Golden Tee while you sip craft brews or concoctions from the bar. With a cult-like following, Golden Tee is the classic golf arcade game you’ve known since you were a kid – it’s still just as fun!

To add some Masters green into your gaming itinerary, take the play outdoors at Wills Park where you can enjoy beautiful flora and fauna on the walking trail or play disc golf on the 18-hole course. Pretend you’re training to be the best caddie ever as you get your steps in on the Big Creek Greenway, with over 8 miles of pathway to cover. You’ll work up an appetite in no time, so get ready to dig into some amazing eats!
