Chapter's Annual Golf Event With A Twist On October 27

Eric Jacobson, Vice President, Ascend Integrated Media

Plan now to attend the Chapter's Annual Golf Classic from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 27. This year with a twist. The twist being it will take place at the totally-fun Topgolf Overland Park

Topgolf is an entertainment complex where the competition of sport meets your favorite local hangout.

Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls, the more points you receive. Even if you've never played golf before you'll have fun. And, if you are an experienced golfer, this event is sure to challenge you.

You use real clubs to hit regular golf balls onto the state-of-the-art outfield. Clubs are provided at no charge.

More specifically, think of this type of golfing like bowling or darts, but for golf! When it’s your turn, you hit a golf ball containing a personalized microchip into one of 11 targets ranging from 20 to 240 yards away. Every section of every target has a reader that detects the microchip in your clever golf ball. That reader computes your score based on the accuracy and distance of the shot and then sends the score to your bay screen. No pencil and paper needed to keep score in this game!
