You read that correctly, a Topgolf venue has arrived in Glasgow, and people are losing their minds. Having reached the heights of popularity in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Dubai, the brand-new entertainment golf spot with climate-controlled bays branched out to Glasgow’s Rutherglen area and opened its doors today, on December 16.
Also a hit amongst celebrities such as Hugh Jackman and Kelly Clarkson, Topgolf is the ultimate instigator of play with a modern golf entertainment experience and is a welcome addition to our golf-loving nation.
Players can expect tech-driven games in a three-story venue, a generous food and drink menu, and a vibe focused on more play for all in the purpose-built venue. Situated in Rutherglen, Players will be transported into a new world of gamified golf and take on their friends and family in friendly stand-offs. Basically, you don’t need to be a pro in golf to take this on, as long as everyone is having fun while swinging some clubs.
How does Topgolf work?
Topgolf says that the venue is designed for both golfers and non-golfers, it’s a modern take on the centuries-old game and is designed for everyone to play around. So, how does it work? Every ball has a ball-tracing technology used in major golf events, and there are lit-up targets throughout the field that players can see from up above.
Once visitors shoot their shot, they will see where their ball has landed, and if they hit their targets due to the ball being traced. During the game, players can expect detailed feedback on their swing and understand golf in a way like they’ve never seen before. There are also interactive games to be gained, such as the classic Topgolf target-based games, fan-favourite Angry Birds, or even some of the world’s most iconic courses in a virtual setting.
On top of all the golfing action, you can expect plenty of food and drink options at Topgolf Glasgow, such as a classic burger, a haggis pakora or loaded nachos, to recharge in your bay before landing your targets. The drinks menu has been specifically designed for Glasgow, so we’re expecting it to be a great wee night out when it finally opens. Bring it on!
