Another Dallas-based company, Topgolf features a “chef-driven menu” that updates seasonally. Just make sure to use napkins so you don’t let a golf club slip out of your hands into the armored cart that scoops up the golf balls.

If you’re not out swinging on a bay, check out the lounge with billiards and other games. Additionally, the rooftop bar actually features one of the best scenic views in Tucson.

For more information, call (520) 284-5047 or visit topgolf.com.
