Golf is an excellent way to keep fit and Scandinavian studies have revealed that golfers live five years longer than those who haven’t played before!1 In fact, playing 18-holes can burn at least 900 calories, with golfers walking more than 10,000 steps per game.2

Golf includes a number of health benefits including:

Topgolf’s coaching zone is fully equipped with cutting-edge facilities and training aids, including Hudl swing analysis, with golf clubs available to hire at no additional cost.

Players can make use of Topgolf’s unique driving range and hit personalised microchipped golf balls at 11 dartboard-like targets on a 240-yard outfield. The balls are instantly scored and ranked for each shot’s accuracy and distance. The closer the ball gets to the centre of the target, the more points are scored.

Topgolf venues offer multiple player bays as well as a large restaurant-bar, Sky Sports, a beer garden and an American Golf shop. The venues open from 9am seven days a week. For more information visit or follow at @TopgolfUK.

Topgolf is located at three venues – Surrey (Addlestone), Watford and Chigwell with plans to expand throughout the UK.
