As you’d expect, the story of Topgolf began on a driving range, where two brothers were practising their swings, this was the year 2000.
As boredom took hold, the brothers began inventing new ways they could liven up their range experience and improve their skills at the same time. Why wasn’t there a place where they could work on their game and also have the best time of their lives? Why couldn’t they know exactly where their ball had landed?
The idea for Topgolf was born.
The Jolliffe brothers envisioned a new kind of golf experience that combines competition with entertainment. Players hit micro-chipped golf balls at targets on an outfield. Just picture a larger-than-life-sized outdoor dartboard – but for golf. And for a little friendly rivalry, the high-tech balls instantly score each shot’s accuracy and distance.
Fast forward to now, and Topgolf has evolved to become a best-in-class entertainment venue, complete with dynamic event spaces and a food and drink menu that would put any sports bar to shame. With golf pros strolling the tee line offering tips and heated hitting bays, Topgolf is flat-out fun at any age, skill level or time of year.
How did this story end? Well, it hasn’t. Today, Topgolf employs more than 500 associates across the UK. We want you to be one of them.
