Sited in Emirates Hills next to Emirates Golf Club, Topgolf Dubai is the city’s latest one-stop destination for fun, food and frolic. If you haven’t visited yet, set an evening aside and make your way over to the brand’s first location in the Middle East and Asia.
The venue offers something for all ages, with 96 hitting bays at Topgolf, a Minigolf section on Topgolf’s lower level and an Arcade area indoors; with diverse dining options available for every craving.
The entrance process is quick and thorough. We registered and were on our way to the golf bays in no time. The best part, since the bays are rented out by the hour, each one can host up to six people at a time, hitting unlimited golf balls for the duration of the rental.
Once we got to our bay, we had to pause a moment to take in the striking views of Dubai Marina’s cityscape – a gorgeous sight for an evening out.
If you visit Topgolf, like us, it’s most likely going to be for an outing bay-side for a round of golf with the mates or your date. We discovered first hand that Topgolf has so more to offer at their restaurants, in terms of their food and beverage options.
After a couple of rounds we found ourselves looking forward to the venue’s new summer menu filled with nibbles and bigger bites. Vegans take note, the menu features options for you too.
My partner decided to start off with a thirst-quenching beverage infused with ginger and lime; while I sipped on a refreshing mango and pineapple mocktail. Spoilt for choice, we later moved on to hops and grape.
In a bid to embrace the local cuisine, new sharing additions to the menu include the Arba-A hummus platter and Crispy breaded halloumi fries with a side of moreish chilli jam. The tray of hummus included innovative, distinct and delicious flavours such as edamame, beetroot, spicy Moroccan and smoky harissa, alongside pickles and toasted Arabic bread. Since it was a relatively warm evening, the cool dips provided a welcoming light bite.
To cool down a bit, we moved indoors and decided to try a few more dishes off their menu. The Korean-style Angus beef barbeque plate was juicy and cooked just right for a tender, juicy entrée; while the House-smoked buffalo chicken flatbread topped with carrot and celery matchsticks, buffalo hot sauce and jalapeño ranch sauce presented a scrumptious end to our evening.
