Fun off the Greens

If you’re hoping to improve your game and don’t mind a quick road trip, check out Topgolf in Edison. With 102 hitting bays on three tiers, the facility accommodates players of all skill levels. Each bay is equipped with micro-chipped balls that golfers hit toward targets, which range from 25 to 215 yards away. With each golf stroke, the microchip tracks distance and proximity to the targets and delivers a “score” to the bay.

But Topgolf is more than a driving range: It also features a full-service restaurant, multiple bars, foosball tables and HDTVs equipped with video game systems.
