Topgolf formed an alliance with the PGA Tour and the LPGA. On March 19, junior golfers (ages 6-17) from The First Tee and LPGA-USGA Girls Golf received an afternoon of free game play, golf instruction, food and beverage at Topgolf venues in Jacksonville, FL, Gilbert, AZ, Alpharetta, GA, Dallas and Denver.
At the first annual Junior Play event, Topgolf stated that it is now offering free game play for charitable organizations committed to youth leadership and mentorship, in addition to any high school golf team.
“The PGA TOUR and LPGA are collaborating with Topgolf on developing initiatives to help grow the game,” said Ty Votaw, PGA Tour EVP and CMO. “PGA Tour Charities is excited to bring LPGA-USGA Girls Golf and The First Tee together to experience a free Topgolf event through Topgolf Junior Play.”
“Topgolf’s innovative and imaginative approach is introducing more people to the game,” LPGA Chief Commercial Officer Jon Podany said. “Through these new initiatives that we are working on with the PGA TOUR and Topgolf, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring that fun experience to more and more kids, particularly young girls. It can only have further positive benefits to the game of golf.”
