ABEF Topgolf Outing

Written by NAMA on Friday, February 5, 2016 , 9:29 am

PROB-0061_black+greenhigh resForget what you thought you knew about golf. ABEF is scrapping the traditional golf outing for something a little different this year. Join your peers at Topgolf for a competitive and fun
time everyone can enjoy—no golf experience required.

Here’s how it works… Take a swing at microchipped golf balls, aiming them at targets to rack up the points. Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. You can choose from different games where you aim your golf balls at different colored targets. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out into the field you hit, the more points you receive. Plus, enjoy great drinks and food in an upscale club atmosphere. Fore!

Time: 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Bus will depart the hotel at 2:00 p.m. and be back at 6:00 p.m.

Cost: $100/person
