Yesterday evening I was driving home from work and received a call from TopGolf’s beloved Corporate Executive Chef Seve Delgado. Her niece’s best friend lost her home in the Moore, Okla. tornado, so her family and friends were packing a U-Haul full of donated items for the city’s victims. Seve asked me if TopGolf could help pull together extra donations to fill the truck before it left…the next morning.
What is better than playing TopGolf and eating delicious food? Playing TopGolf and eating delicious food alongside Rickie Fowler! This Monday, TopGolf Dallas had the pleasure of hosting Rickie and his Red Bull friends in our LUX Suite. Rickie was only in town for one day to promote and participate in the Rickie Fowler Off Course event hosted by Red Bull in downtown Dallas.
Who says the Rodeo can’t last all year? Not TopGolf Houston! We had a blast this week at the Rodeo After Party, mechanical bull and all. Karbach came out to represent its Rodeo Clown Double IPA craft brew and to get some guests rockin’ the clown noses. Trust me, after a couple of those, not only will you be sporting the clown nose, but a bikini as well…and riding the mechanical bull. Yes, that did happen. And guys, before I crush your dreams, it was actually a man who did it – sorry!
TopGolf Houston hosted a really special guest this past week from the famous show American Idol — fan favorite and season 12 finalist Vincent Powell. First off, sweetest, funniest guy ever! Vincent gave a live performance for all the guests at TopGolf, in addition to posing for photos and signing autographs for his fans. It was also great to see some of the guests’ faces when they spotted Vincent. Many of them were shocked to discover one of their favorite American Idol contestants in the building.
BUST A MOVE because it is almost time for the Totally ’80s party here at TopGolf Dallas. What comes to mind when you think about this decade? Bright colors, MC Hammer pants, Knight Rider or Caddyshack? No matter your rad ’80s style, we welcome you to come celebrate with us on Saturday, April 27! The party starts at 7 p.m. and does not end until 1 a.m., so wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to golf the night away.
What happens when you work in the golf industry and the Masters rolls around? A fantasy draft, that’s what! The Marketing Department filled the conference room at the Home Office in Dallas while the onsite teams called in for our first annual Masters Fantasy Draft. Each of the 17 participants took their turn to attempt our versions of name pronunciation and draft their 3-man team that we anxiously cheered on during the past few days.
Our daily scoring updates were followed by emails proclaiming “it’s a marathon not a sprint” as well as a little peer pressure and DQ-debate. In the end, we all had another reason to stay glued to the Golf Channel with the participants of our “Like A Boss” tournament who drafted their own players during the Saturday morning event at TopGolf!
What a great weekend for some amazing golf, and looking forward to the U.S. Open with our Birdies, Bogies, BOOM! tournament over Father’s Day weekend.
