You'll be up early to watch the royal wedding, of course (it begins at 4 a.m. Saturday), but you won't even have to change out of your PJs for the free festivities at Topgolf, a recreation complex a couple of blocks east of Las Vegas Boulevard.
In addition to traditional green-grass golfers, NGF research shows there’s an additional 8.3 million people who played exclusively off course – either at Topgolf (or similar) venues, standalone driving ranges or in indoor simulators.
In 2017, 23.8 million people played golf on a course, roughly the same number as the previous year. Participation off-course, in the form of play at facilities such as Topgolf or at facilities with on-screen simulators, though, rose 7 percent, to 21.7 million.
