It's like a Dave and Buster's built around a driving range.

Topgolf’s newest location opens Friday in Bridgeville. A global sports entertainment chain, Topgolf offers golfers the chance to play competitive point-scoring games using microchipped balls that instantly score themselves.  

Players earn points by hitting the golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets situated on an outfield. The balls also show players the accuracy and distance of their shots on a TV screen in their hitting bay.
 


 

The Pittsburgh venue will be open year-round and contains three levels with more than 100 hitting bays. This is the company’s first location in Pennsylvania and it’s 43rd location worldwide, including sites in Oregon, Texas and other countries such as England and Australia.

The venue offers several types of games, starting with the basic Topgolf, in which players score points by hitting balls into any of the different colored targets — the more accurate the shot and the farther the distance, the more points earned.

Other games include Quick 9, in which players get three shots each at red, yellow, and green targets and earn points based on how close the ball lands to the center of the target.

Players must purchase a $5 membership card to gain access to the bays and keep score. Bays are rented by the hour and one to six players may hit unlimited golf balls for the duration of their rental.
 


 

The cost to rent a bay for a group is $25 per hour from opening to noon, $35 per hour from noon to 5 p.m. and $45 per hour from 5 p.m. until closing, seven days a week.

Topgolf also features a full-size kitchen that delivers food and drinks throughout the venue. The year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments and instruction. Space in the facility also may be rented by outside groups for events and parties.
