Why Can’t they Bring this Fun Gaming Center to Ocean or Monmouth County, NJ?
Ocean and Monmouth counties are dropping the ball with this one.
We're always talking about businesses we'd love to see open at the Jersey Shore, and I found something I'd like to add to the list!
Over the weekend, I took my friend Alyssa and her husband Matt to TopGolf in Mt. Laurel, and it was so much fun! If you've never been to TopGolf, it's an indoor-outdoor driving range, but you don't need any actual golfing experience to play (otherwise I would not be writing this right now!)
Here's a photo (a screenshot of a video, forgive the quality) of the impressive course:
While you're playing, you can order food and drinks (which is the best part). And there are different versions of the game to play. My friends and I played the signature version of the game, which is just trying to hit the golf ball into the colored targets, and we also tried Angry Birds which was a lot of fun! With Angry Birds, when you'd hit the ball, you could follow it along on a TV Screen, and it would show your ball "blowing up targets" and getting points. I did surprisingly well in that game.
There are currently only 2 TopGolf locations in New Jersey. That's it. Neither are all that close to Ocean County either. The location I went to in Mt. Laurel (Burlington County) is about an hour away, and there's also one in Edison (Middlesex County), which is a little less than an hour away.
It's also worth mentioning there is a TopGolf Swing Suite in iPlay America in Freehold, which is a virtual version of the game where you can still enjoy food and drink while you play. But I really think Monmouth and Ocean Counties could also use the full TopGolf experience!
