Swing into the new year at TopGolf Orlando


Happy New Year, everyone!

The holidays sure did fly by this year; I think because in general, we are just getting busier and busier. I think that’s why I enjoy TopGolf so much, and the fact that I’m actually pretty good at it. But, honestly, it gives you a chance to simply enjoy the company of friends and family while playing a competitive leisurely game of “golf.”


If you are not familiar with TopGolf, it is basically a multi-level driving range. You nook, called a Bay, can accommodate up to 8 people and bar and table service are available throughout the game play.

There are a variety of different games you can choose from, based on your expertise. I prefer just the original TopGolf mode, but there is something for everyone whether you are looking to test your skills or just practice your swing.


It’s mini golf with a twist and will easily become your local hangout. Once you purchase a Lifetime Membership to TopGolf (only $5) you will receive a card which holds all your previous scoring information; it also allows your balls to know who is hitting. The golf balls at TopGolf are microchipped with a Toptracer which measures the carry, ball speed, height, hang time and curve of the ball. You’ll feel like a pro during the replay.


It’s one of my favorite new attractions in the Orlando area.


Check your local TopGolf location for reservation information. Walk-ins are always welcome, but if you are in a time crunch look into making a reservation. *Reservation fees will apply.

Who’s ready to challenge me to round?

Arnold Palmer Invitational



IMG_5040Checking in today from beautiful Bay Hill, Florida.

Every year I attend the Arnold Palmer Invitational with my dad.  And, every year, I seem to forget how hot it is in Florida in March and never seem to choose the right thing to wear.  I either wear the wrong shoes or the wrong dress or I go to the extreme and wear jeans!!  I knew this morning when I put those jeans on it was going to be a mistake, but for some reason I didn’t listen to my instinct.  So, despite the wardrobe malfunction, it was an amazing day.  Honestly, I was only uncomfortable towards the end of the day when my jeans were sticking to my legs, but otherwise, I’ve been in more uncomfortable situations.

We began the day by sitting down with this man…

IMG_4997The legendary Mr, Arnold Palmer.  He is such a nice, genuine person!!

After getting a photo and autograph, we wandered around the course and stopped into a few hospitality tents.  The weather was spectacular and the views were great!IMG_5005IMG_5032I don’t generally follow much golf, but when you are there, watching it in person, it is so exciting.  I found myself on the edge of my seat a few times.  Makes me want to take up golf again…this happens every year.  I always go to the tournament and always want to take up golf the next day.

I’ll be heading back to the course tomorrow.  Excited to spend more time with my dad and also excited to see who comes out the winner this year.  Wishing best of luck to all the players. 🙂IMG_5009
