TopGolf brings technology to golfing, allowing golfers of all ages (with supervision) the chance to track the distance of their ball with a microchip and personalized feedback on a monitor screen. Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls, the more points you receive.
