TopGolf, located in Alexandria is an entertainment complex for golf aficionados of all ages. The OK interns and I headed to TopGolf on a beautiful summer afternoon to check out their mini golf offerings. When we arrived, we paid our fees ($7 for kids 12 and under; $9 for adults) and were told we could play either of the two courses for as long as we wanted.
The mini golf section of TopGolf features 36 holes. And while there are no major obstacles in either of the courses, we thought they were challenging. We played 18 holes and it took us around an hour. It was getting toward lunchtime so we opted to skip the second course.
There wasn’t much shade on the blue course so bring a hat and definitely apply sunblock. We recommend the mini golf courses for ages 5 and up. Mini golf is available during normal business hours and the last game has to be purchased one hour prior to their closing time.
While at TopGolf be sure to check out the driving range, the kids will get a kick out of watching players hitting balls all over the place. It’s literally a 240-yard field with targets. You can play point-scoring games and the facility recommends the arena for ages 7 and up.
We couldn’t pass up sitting outside on the beautiful day and decided to check out their food. We weren’t disappointed! Their menu features unique, healthy options, plus a decent kids menu. Everything from burgers, salads, sandwiches and wraps are available. I had a delicious crab cake slider and the kids ordered from the kids menu. We rounded out our meal with the TopGolf Injectable Donut Holes. Yes — they give you syringes filled with raspberry and chocolate and you inject your own donut holes with the delicious concoctions. They are a must-try!
There is indoor and outdoor seating for their restaurant; although do note that if you’re outside, smoking is allowed which was a surprise to me.
