Chigwell, Woodford and Loughton are not short of a quality round of golf or two and have some great local clubs. But if you are looking to get the whole family involved Topgolf on Abridge Rd.Chigwell, has been pioneering technology to make golf more fun and engaging for all. 

Over recent years golf has grown as an activity and has emerged as a global sport. As with so many other global sports and entertainments they have become more and be more community focused. As people are looking for activities that connect people in meaningful ways what better way than through enjoying golf?

Topgolf has taken a lead in making golf a game for everyone, with 40 venues entertaining more than 13 million guests a year. They aim to blend technology and entertainment, golfers and non-golfers, children and adults. On offer are original content shows, next-gen simulator lounges through Topgolf Swing Suite, the global Topgolf Tour competition, pop-up social experiences like Topgolf Crush and Toptracer technology. Every venue features dozens of high-tech, climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round comfort, a chef-inspired menu for year-round deliciousness and hundreds of Associates eager to help create the moments that matter. 

Maybe it is more of a social club than a golf club with 51% of the guests being non-golfers, only 27% are occasional green grass golfers (1-7 rounds annually), 14% are moderate green grass golfers (8-24 rounds annually)and only 8% are avid green grass golfers (25+ rounds annually)

But that doesn’t stop Funky Fridays on every Friday from 8pm being great fun with lots of music, lots of specials and the game whether you’re looking for a late round after work, or gearing up for a big night out Funky Friday has it all. Live DJ playing the latest funky house and R’n’B tracks, fabulous food and drink, games and competitions to exclusive VIP bays.
