Top Golf in East Wichita set to open soon

By: Reiley Bartel, Online Editor

Merry Christmas to Wichita: The long awaited Top Golf will be opening at the end of this year at 2976 N. Greenwich Road.

Top Golf is an outdoor and climate controlled driving range with hitting bays for year-round golfing. It also has a sports bar, televisions in every bay and throughout the restaurant, and complementary (as in free?)clubs. They have free wi-fi, private event spaces, a 9-hole mini golf course, top tracer games, and more.

Top Golf will be open daily with prices varying on the day of the week and the times of day. Special offers will include half-price Tuesdays and offer a $5 one-time fee for those without a membership.

While an official opening day has not been announced, the location is set to be open sometime before the New Year.

“I am very excited for Top Golf,” said Felisa Sajula, a sophomore member of the women’s golf team. “As a golfer, it's a nice escape from being competitive and being able to be with your friends and family for some fun and good food.”

She said she has been waiting for Top Golf to open since she heard about it and can’t wait to try it out. Sajula, who is from Texas, had gone to Top Golf while at home but said she is excited to be able to go while away from home, too.

“I am very excited to show Felisa my skills,” freshman Haleigh Pearson said. “She should be afraid.”

There are many other students who are excited about the new Top Golf as well who have yet to experience the unique activity center.

“I am very excited for Top Golf when it opens. I have gone in the past to other cities and it was a lot of fun. I am glad that we will have one here locally so that I can go there with my friends to have some laughs and hang out,” said junior Elise Helfrisch.

Even students who haven’t been to the popular spot are looking forward to the new addition.

“My dad said Top Golf is super fun. I have never been myself, but it sounds like a great time and I would like to try it,” freshman Ashlynn Wcislo said.

“It will be something new to bring more life to Wichita. It will also be a fun spot to go on the weekends besides the usual things that everyone does. Even though I’m not good, I try to go hard,” sophomore Tori Waggoner said.
