Playing golf can be frustrating. Between the dress-code, the required inside voices, and the all-day commitment, it’s not for everybody. So next time you accidentally swipe right on someone who happens to be a golf addict, or one person in your group is determined to lower their handicap, take them to TopGolf. It’s a three-story driving range with a lounge area that a small group could hang out in all day. There’s food and beer, cocktails, and wine, and if you try hard enough, you can turn this place into a bar and make everyone forget about improving their short game.
