SFMA HQ Takes on Topgolf

Have you heard about our Topgolf Event coming to the 2018 Conference in Fort Worth, TX? Are you slightly confused as to what Topgolf is? Maybe unsure of how it even works?

Don’t worry, we kind of were too. So that’s why SFMA HQ staff took a quick field trip to the Topgolf Kansas City location and “researched” for our membership.

With the help of the lovely Topgolf staff, we were settled into our bay within no time after checking in. A staff member walked us through the process, how to set up our game and gave recommendations for clubs. The bay area gives you plenty of space to spread out and kick back while others are swinging. Accompanied by an assortment of clubs for both left and right-handed players, we were able to try out them all. Even better? There’s no fee for club rental!

Since some of us had never played golf before, we were thankful that Topgolf does all the scoring for us with their golf ball microchip technology. It’s simple! You hit the ball, and within seconds of it landing, the screen shows you your driving distance, which target you hit and how many points you made. This gave us more time to check out the menu, try out some libations and talk a little smack. A couple hours of play later, the verdict was in: some of us excelled, and some of us repeatedly whiffed. But that’s the thing with Topgolf, it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, because it’s a great time either way.

We had so much fun and are so excited for our members to be able to try it out too! Make sure to sign up for the SAFE Foundation’s Topgolf Event when you register for the 2018 Conference. It will take place on Tuesday, January 16th from 12:00-3:00pm. Additional fee is required.
