Top Golf – Dallas, TX, originally uploaded by espeedy123.

(Texas Mike) Went to the driving range last night with Mike and Rich. I’ve been attempting to play a little more often to get somewhat decent. You probably know the driving range experience is usually no frills. Get a bucket of balls, find a driving mat, and start hitting. If you find some shade you feel pretty lucky.

Well, we decided to see what all the hype was about at Top Golf (www.topgolfusa.com). And it’s pretty cool. They combined the driving range experience with the fun of the bowling alley. Yes, you get a bucket. Yes, you swing the club. But it’s a competition between your friends. Each shot is scored by how accurately you hit those targets (see above). Each player has balls that are coded with your name and automatically tabulate with the computer. Pretty cool. Plus, there’s food and beer and music and mayhem. Not your usual driving range ambiance.
