Join us for a visit to Topgolf Nashville from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (central time) on Sunday, July 15th. We'll provide transportation to Topgolf, which is less than a mile from the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown.

What's Topgolf?

Topgolf is a golf entertainment complex that is fun for people of all ages, from experienced golfers to first-time players! From the comfort of climate-controlled hitting bays (similar to bowling lanes), players hit microchipped balls that track accuracy and distance to award points for hitting targets on the outfield. Topgolf is great for those who want to be competitive and for those who want to mingle with conference attendees and have some fun.

The fee for this event is $60 per person and includes roundtrip transportation, lunch, beverages, and prizes. Registration is open to youth, guests, and delegates. Topgolf is an optional event and the fee is not included in the conference registration. You can register for Topgolf along with your conference registration here, and the fee can be made via credit card or check.
