Spring Break Camp at Topgolf
I’d always thought Topgolf was a really fun place to hang out with friends, maybe enjoy with family, or even have a cool date night. I had no idea they also offered golf camps for kids and was pretty surprised when we were invited to take part in this this year’s Spring Break Academy!
The Spring and Summer Academies at TopGolf are 1/2 day golf clinics, taught by Professional Golf Instructors, designed to teach kids ages 6-12 the various components of the game- chipping, putting, full swing, and golf rules and etiquette. Really, it’s far more than the typical putt-putt game that my kids were used to! While this made a me little nervous because I didn’t want this experience to feel like “school” for them, Topgolf Academy also does a great job mixing in some fun and interaction that the kids absolutely loved!
There were about 8 kids in the group, including my youngest daughter’s BFF, and an even mix of boys and girls, so my kids were really comfortable with me dropping them off every day. It was hilarious how the girls kind of clicked together from the beginning, but I was glad that they each got individualized instruction and equal time to practice and play. The instructors were awesome at our Atlanta location and I loved seeing them take time to really work with the kids, as well as have a little fun with them.
What has been absolutely hilarious since the program is the fact that my kids have gotten so far into the game of golf now, they’ve been “shadow-swinging” around the house, trying to teach us how to swing and even commenting on professional golf tournaments on TV! Part of me is like, “That’s great,” but part of me wants to break the news to them that they’re not quite Tiger Woods yet!
Topgolf Summer Academy
Now, we’re contemplating sending them to the Summer Academy at Topgolf to keep the momentum going from all they’ve learned so far. The Summer Academy is also a half day golf clinic that takes place 5 days a week, as opposed to the 3 days offered for the Spring Academy. Dates are available from May to August.
The pricing for the Summer Academy varies by venue from $199-$224 per child and if you register by Tuesday, May 1, you’ll also get a $25 Game Play coupon for a night out for yourself!
