Since opening in September 2018, Topgolf has become one of the top attractions in the Twin Cities. The 60,000-square foot venue features three levels of 34 semi climate-controlled golf bays that can accommodate up to six golfers (and two observers). Its variety of event spaces are available to rent with state-of-the-art AV equipment at no extra cost. They provide options for groups of 12 to 1,200, ranging from a smaller board room to a rooftop terrace and lower longue with two billiard tables. Single level buy-outs and full buy-outs are available, as well.
Gather and relax on Topgolf’s expansive rooftop patio with views of the downtown Minneapolis skyline. The patio includes a wrap-around bar, lounge furniture, TVs and a stage for speeches, music and DJs. This spot is poised to become a great summer attraction with special events like trivia nights, live music, community events and sports draft parties. The terrace is spacious and open but still offers a level a privacy if you have a group there. Capacity: 178 guests
The large Signature Room comes with a full bar and several TVs; it can be divided into Sig Room A and Sig Room B with a white board wall divider, a fun compliment to any presentation, team-building exercise or games. Each room has garage doors that open onto the hitting bays; reserve the bays right by your space and you’ll have an even bigger event space. This area is ideal for conferences, seminars and annual meetings. Capacity, full room: 250 guests, half room: 125 guests
The Chariman’s Suite is the goldilocks room of Topgolf – not too big, not too small, just right. Situated on the third level, guests are treated to spectacular views of the outfield and light-up targets. Its filled with a mix of lounge-style couches and tables, and it includes a slider door that can open right onto the concourse. Capacity: 60 guests
Head downstairs to the TCL Lounge in the lower level for a series of blocked TV screens that are ideal for video-gaming tournaments. There are also billiards tables, shuffle board. Portable bars can be set up, so your guests are never too far from a refreshing beverage. Capacity: 82 guests.
Rent out the entire Topgolf venue for an event no one will forget. It can host more than 1,000 guests and about 600 players – a great option for charity tournaments. Vikings players and the Minnesota Twins have enjoyed successful one-level and full-venue buyouts.
Any group over 12 is encouraged to utilize Topgolf expert staff. You’ll be assigned an Event Advisor who will help you plan your event in three easy steps: 1) Select your game play day and time (pricing varies depending on time of day and week day vs. weekend play), 2) Choose your menu – a delicious, supreme variety of options, from Backyard BBQ package to Fajita Feast or Italian Table packages, 3) Choose your enhancements with an additional dessert tray, pro golfer instructions or event mementos for your guests.
Topgolf prides itself on being flexible and accommodating with its variety of set-up options. The only limits are your own imagination. While the venue excels at hosting birthdays and bachelorette parties, the staff enjoy different kinds of events, from gaming tournaments to a recent gender reveal party – the father hit a golf ball and the targets lit up in blue! “No matter what the request is, we’ll see how we can make it happen,” says Marketing Manager Amy Struve.
The game itself caters to all skill levels, almost all ages and abilities, and more than half of Topgolf’s customers are non-golfers. The interactive games have automated game scoring for easy play that track the micro-chipped balls – no need to carry around a little yellow pencil and scorecard. Challenge your guests to seven different point-scoring golf games anyone can play. Left-handed, child and toddler clubs are available upon request. “It’s everyone’s game here,” Amy says. “It really surprises people but Topgolf truly is fun for all.”
When all is said and done, food may be the most important part of any event. Topgolf’s well-rounded, delicious menu and dining packages will not disappoint. Talk with an Event Advisor for the full range of edible options, but here’s a snapshot to whet your appetite!
