If you ever wanted to golf with Fido by your side, Topgolf in Scottsdale is your place.
The recently opened driving range lets you bring your canines along for the ride, who can relax on cushioned couches as you bounce off balls into targets throughout the range.
Its dog-friendliness isn’t its only draw. Anyone will have fun at Topgolf, whether you’re a pro with the sticks or not. Each hole has its own misted and fanned lounge area, with servers delivering drinks and food as you compete against your friends.
There are full bars on both golfing levels, as well as a rooftop bar, and fire pits and extra lounging areas give a great view of Valley sunsets, making it a bonafide Scottsdale rooftop bar contender.
For those who do golf, up to six people can compete against each other to score points by hitting balls into one of the netted areas. Rates are hourly, after you pay a $5 membership fee. It’s $25/hour between open-noon, $35/hour between noon-5 p.m. and $45/hour between 5 p.m.-close. Divided by a group of six, that’s not too bad, and I loved it as a new fun alternative to group bowling.
Something I wasn’t a fan of was that woods and drivers are not allowed, only irons. A driving range where you can’t use your driver?! Yep.
Apparently too many people were hitting the ball over the fence into Talking Stick Resort area. Bummer.
Still, it’s pretty darn awesome to hit balls in cool air to Top 40 music. Learn more about Topgolf here.
