New TopGolf Much More Than A Driving Range

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:12 PM CDT

This is not your father’s driving range.  Remember dad swinging his club to get a bucket of golf balls, one ball at a time into a row of nets at the other end of a vacant lot?  TopGolf Austin brings the experience into the 21st century.  The new driving range and sports bar uses RFID (radio frequency identification technology) to match you and your golf ball so you can get an accurate read on your score on computer monitor.  The holes even let you know how close you were to the flag.


TopGolf has been in Austin for just a few weeks.  The three-level, 65,000-square-foot facility, took nine months to build.  With that much space, it’s more than a driving range.  They’re planning live music and themed nights as well as kids’ golf clinics all Summer.  TopGolf is located at 11301 Burnet Road across Burnet Road from The Domain.
