Top Shot @ Topgolf

Tee it Up for Scholarships

The CGA Educational Foundation invites new and experienced players to join Top Shot @ Topgolf to raise funds for the CGAEF College Scholarship Program. In 2021, more than $800,000 of college scholarships were awarded to grocery industry employees and their families.

No golfing ability? No problem! Topgolf is a game that anyone can play (and win). Score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer you get your ball to the center or ‘bullseye’ and the further the distance, the more points earned.
