Charity Golf Outing At TopGolf Will Support Freedom To Walk Foundation

Freedom to Walk Foundation is hosting a charity golf outing at TopGolf Tampa, 10690 Palm River Rd., on Thursday, May 24 from 6-10 p.m.
Join in the golf, food, raffles, prizes and fun to help a child to walk. No golfing ability? No problem. Topgolf is a game for all ages. Score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer you get your ball to the center or ‘bullseye’ and the further the distance, the more points earned.

If you are serious about dominating the competition or just want to show off your golf fling, you can bring your own.
