FINALLY ANNOUNCED! Too bad it won't be open in time for the +Big Android BBQ, but possibly next year? * fingers crossed *
Topgolf, the popular driving range and lounge concept based in Dallas, officially revealed Tuesday that it’s bringing its game to Fort Worth.

Tried out some of the new test menu items being cooked up by the #Topgolf chefs today at lunch: the #pickle fries (bottom of photo) were amazing and need be added to our menu, like, today. The pulled pork sliders were pretty good, too. Finally, I expect the bacon mac-and-cheese egg rolls will be one of those "love it or hate it" type of items (although I liked them). Our chefs continue to add ridiculously delicious items to the menu a few times a year, I'm so glad we got to check them out today!

Always wanted to stay at The Del, and finally got my chance! Great ambience and history, and all the amenities you'd expect from a top hotel

Great stay! Incredible rooms with all the amenities and extras, and very close to the Topgolf where I'm working this week, for a great week-long experience

Great service! I use them every few years, whenever the need unfortunately arises :) My only complaints have to do with the lame requirements imposed by the state, because Sense of Humor Defensive Driving is great otherwise!
