Top golf is a new age driving range for golfers that are in Watford, Hertfordshire. The idea around the new age driving range was to make golf more appealing to families and most importantly children.
Top golf is a 2 level driving range with 40 + bays. You can rent equipment to play with or bring your own. Top golf came up with a kind of snooker type game that the family or individual can play. In each golf ball there is a micro chip that feed back data to the player on a screen above the bay. Out in the driving range its self are 10 holes in the ground which you need to aim for. In each hole are bags. When the bag falls in to the hole the micro chip is read and the computer give you the distance you have hit and in which bag it landed in. each hole has a point score and the closer you get to the middle the more point you get. (I hope I explained that good enough) after hitting all your 25 balls you add up the total point and the one with the most wins. All in all this gives a experience that everyone loves..
This is one of the greatest ideas golf has come up with and I love it. I love golf and I play off of an 8 handicap. But it does not matter what you play off or even if you have ever played. It great fun for all and is perfect for birthday parties.
The cost is the only problem. 100 balls down a normal range is about £4 here you only get 25 balls for £4. I understand that the up keep is more and the balls and technology cost more but I see it as a down side.
Summary: Great, Just great.
