The rainy winter months in the Pacific NW can make catching a clear day for a round of golf challenging at times. But fear not! Seattle has some events coming up around town to keep the dust off your clubs and your mind in gear for the golf season.
TopGolf Crush Event
February 17TH- 20TH
The TopGolf experience is coming to Seattle for Presidents Day weekend. Safeco Field will be transformed into a unique driving range, giving you a chance to hit golf balls from the stands to targets on the outfield. Your one-hour tee time will get you a bay to soak up the TopGolf atmosphere as you try to rack up points for the targets you successfully hit. It’s like bowling for golf. In addition to the thrill of competition, the event will include DJs playing great music and concessions throughout the park.
If you are planning to head over to the TopGolf Crush event, be sure to stop by The First Tee’s “Beat the Pro” station. Alex Dunlop of Alex Dunlop Golf and Ryan Young of Chambers Bay will be there for some friendly competition for a great cause. On Sunday, February 19th and Monday, February 20th, those with TopGolf reservations will have a chance to challenge these two to a closest-to-the-pin contest. If you beat the pro, you’ll be entered to win a round at Chambers Bay! Plus, get a quick swing tip while you are visiting The First Tee station. You can enter the fun with a donation of $10, which will help youth scholarships at The First Tee.
Simply stop by The First Tee station before or after your reservation to check in and play. Alex will be on-hand from 12 PM to 6 PM on Sunday and Ryan will be joining us from 10 AM to 2 PM on Monday.
