DALLAS, May 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fun, food, drinks and music all come together for the ultimate Topgolf® experience. Now the fun will continue as guests can ride in style to and from the Topgolf venues and maybe even meet some new friends along the way. Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf today named Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S., its official rideshare partner to offer transportation for Topgolf's 38 venues nationwide.
Topgolf guests now have a hassle-free option to skip out on parking and leave their cars at home, make smart transportation decisions and share rides to and from their favorite Topgolf venues across the country with Lyft. By exclusively partnering with Topgolf, Lyft now provides Topgolf fans with nationwide access to affordable, responsible and friendly rides throughout the year.
"At Topgolf, we're thrilled that our incredible guest experience will extend and continue even after you're done playing, by getting you home safe and sound," said Topgolf Vice President of Global Partnerships Rodney Ferrell.
The partnership will also provide an established Lyft pick-up and drop-off location in front of the Topgolf venues for easy recognition by guests.
"We're proud to partner with Topgolf, coupling the world's best transportation with an unforgettable night out," said Lyft Vice President of Local Marketing David Mayer. "No matter how many golf balls you hit or Topgolf venues you visit, Lyft provides a responsible ride home."
