FORE! TOPGOLF BRINGING CRUSH TO F1 USGP
Racing fans can experience a new kind of competition during the 2017 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX: Topgolf® Crush! From October 18-22, sports fans, golfers and non-golfers alike can enjoy food, drinks and music – all while crushing golf balls alongside the legendary Turn 1 of Circuit of The Americas into giant targets. Tickets for Topgolf Crush Grand Prix go on sale at 10 am CT on Thursday, August 24 at circuitoftheamericas.com/crush.
“The 2017 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX is an event the entire world looks forward to, and we can’t wait to bring Topgolf Crush to one of the most iconic spots at Circuit of The Americas – Turn 1 ,” said Topgolf President of Media YuChiang Cheng. “Austin residents have already embraced Topgolf in The Domain, but Topgolf Crush is a unique entertainment experience with new game technology and a breathtaking view.”
Players will aim for seven giant targets ranging from 50-150 yards away from one of 23 bays. Topgolf’s Toptracer Range technology – not yet available at Topgolf Austin – tracks the flight path of the golf balls, instantly scoring every shot so players can challenge others to competition. Operating daily from 9 a.m. to midnight, Topgolf Crush Grand Prix guests can enjoy food and drinks, as well as various recreation games for those wanting to keep the fun going before or after their tee time. A live DJ will spin every day throughout the weekend.
“Circuit of The Americas brings more than 300,000 people to Austin for the Grand Prix, and Topgolf Crush Grand Prix creates an even larger draw for visitors and locals alike,” said Bobby Epstein, chairman of Circuit of The Americas. “The eyes of the world will be on Austin and COTA this October, and we are thrilled to welcome Topgolf Crush to the weekend’s activities.”

VIP passes include 55 minutes of game play, food and beverage in the exclusive VIP lounge, a special VIP gift package, a complimentary Topgolf Lifetime Membership and $10 off game play, redeemable at Topgolf Austin.
