Have I ever told you how much I love being a Macaroni Kid publisher?    I get to experience things that I never would have had an opportunity to do.   This past week I was invited to Top Golf in Alpharetta.   Now you are saying golf, I know.   I said the same thing.  Stereotypically, Golf is for older men.   Not a young beautiful Mom like us and certainly not for my kids.  I said the same.   Boy was I surprised.

From the Top Golf site “It’s an authentic golf experience that combines competition with entertainment. It’s like drinks with your best buddies, the weekly poker night, a Sunday tee time, playing Wii with the kids and the best date you’ve ever had – all rolled into one.  Top Golf has evolved to become a best-in-class entertainment facility, complete with dynamic event spaces and a food and drink menu that would put any sports bar to shame. With golf pros strolling the tee line offering tips and climate-controlled hitting bays, Top Golf is flat-out fun at any age, skill level or time of year.”

There is so much more to Top Golf than just golf.   You want to hang out with some girl friends on the roof top bar.   You want your kids to be outside and play actively, you can.  The kids want to play the X-Box, it’s possible too.   You just want a nice date night with your husband...   Or you want an affair to remember like a Bat/ Bat Mitzvah, Wedding, Graduation Party it’s all possible at Top Golf. 

You can play billiards, foos ball, or just hang out in the lounges. 

After you walk in, you see an outside level of climate controlled “bays” There are comfy couches, think "loungey" plus two TV screens on each bay.   Then you see a Giant green with huge colored dartboard.   From the site again “Players hit micro chipped golf balls at targets on an outfield. Just picture a larger-than-life-sized outdoor dartboard – but for golf. And for a little friendly rivalry, the high-tech balls instantly score each shot’s accuracy and distance.”  

But that’s not all Top Golf is about, let’s discuss the food.   Top Golf takes a spin on the food.   Gives it an extra twist.   Oh my god, everything was delicious:  Shrimp and Grits, Smoked Brisket Street Tacos, Mushroom Risotto, MacDaddy Burger, and Salmon. For dessert, we had Injectable Donuts, Strawberry Shortcake and Caramel Sea Salt Blonde Brownie Bites.
