Topgolf took first place in the Bachelor Parties category.

Having fun is the name of the game and beats out a good golf swing any day at Topgolf, which is why the sports entertainment venue off Ikea Way near Polaris is a hotspot for hosting bachelor parties. Fueled by food and drinks and a little competitive spirit, everyone scores big in socializing.

Topgolf amenities include 100-plus climate-controlled hitting bays, more than 200 HDTVs (including one in every bay), a rooftop terrace with a fire pit and private event spaces.

Game play can be tailored to a group’s skill level so everyone has an enjoyable experience—from beginners to advanced—for both the long and short games. The goal is to hit the giant targets from different distances, with accuracy earning you points. Microchipped balls keep track of shots and are tabulated on bay screens, so players can effortlessly keep score and track their progress. Players can also choose to play virtual courses that simulate some of the top golf courses in the world, including Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay.

In addition to sports and entertainment, Topgolf’s restaurant features a chef-driven menu that puts a “fresh twist” on familiar favorites, along with local specialties and brews. From shareable plates to burgers, sandwiches and salads to dessert, the restaurant and bar are always open if eating, drinking and socializing takes priority over hitting golf balls.

Planning a gathering is a snap with online booking and reservations. Party packages are available for small (seven to 12 people) and large (13-plus) groups. All-inclusive packages include game play, food and beverages, plus a party coordinator to make your celebration a success.
