Tips & Tricks for Topgolf Swing Suite
There are over 80 courses to choose from and courses at every skill level. Level 1 (Easy): Mauna Lani, Level 2 (Medium): Torrey Pines, and Level 3 (Hard): Pebble Beach.
Now, let’s get into the details. When you first arrive make sure to add your players, choose your course, and your tee box. The options for tee boxes are Champ, Pro, Amateur, Junior, and Ladies. The second option is to select handicaps for each player. These allow certain players to have a specified stroke cushion over other players. Everyone in your party will play the same course, avid golfers can choose to customize the game with pin locations, hardness, and green speeds.
Mulligans: Mulligans are do-overs. The game gives you the option to allow zero to unlimited mulligans to each golfer. For the most amount of fun, choose unlimited so you are never penalized for a bad shot. For more structured play, choose two or less mulligans.
Gimmes: Suggested you choose either within 6-10 feet, or player chooses. ‘Player chooses’ allows you to account for as many shots as you wish once you hit the green. It is very ambiguous but does quicken the game even more. For the casual player who still wishes to get the fun of putting on greens, choose within 10 feet. It is still challenging enough to be fun and competitive!
Scoring: There are many ways to score a round of golf. Stroke play is the standard scoring mode which allows for individual scores. If you prefer to work in teams, use Team Stroke, Scramble Stroke or Best Ball Stroke. Scramble Stroke allows every player on each team to take their tee shot. Each team will then play from the best shot from their team’s players. Best Ball Stroke allows all players to play the hole as they normally would; however, the team’s score would only record whichever player did the best for that hole.
After each shot you will have the choice of:
Penalty Rehit: This allows the player to re-hit from their original placement of their last shot; however, it will cost the stroke, plus a penalty stroke to do so.
Drop: A drop is when a ball goes out of bounds and needs to be dropped back into play. It costs the players the stroke plus a penalty stroke (like a re-hit) except this time the player can drop the ball in the nearest drop box area where the ball went out of bounds instead of where they originally hit the ball.
Pick Up: This means the player gives up on the hole and will take the max score for the hole.
