Topgolf

Are you a professional athlete? If so, congrats! But we aren’t looking for you. Instead, we are looking for 48 people who want to have a great time with brethren at Topgolf during the Feast in Greenville. What is Topgolf? Topgolf is a game that anyone can play (and win). Score points by hitting microchipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer you get your ball to the bullseye and the further the distance, the more points earned. You do all of this in the comfort of a golf bay, without ever having to go chase down your golf balls.
 
This activity is first-come, first-serve, as we only could reserve 48 spots. Attendees will enjoy two hours of golf games, which also includes a lunch of chopped brisket sliders and chicken tenders, chips, fruit, cookie and nonalcoholic drinks. The price is $52 per person. Alcohol can also be purchased on your own separately. All ages are welcome if you can swing a club, but children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
 
Whether you are a golf hacker or an ace, we hope you will join us for food, fun and fellowship (which are three keys for any successful church activity!).
 
If you would like to attend, payment of $52 per person will be due in full by Aug. 30. If you have any questions, please contact Gregg Pennington at [email protected].
 
Checks can be written out to Gregg Pennington and mailed to this address:
 
P.O. Box 186
Sellersburg, IN 47172
 
You can also send the payment electronically via Zelle, PayPal or Venmo to the above email address ([email protected]).

Site Description

Located in the northwest corner of South Carolina, Greenville is set among the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Downtown Greenville is a historic Southern city that has come of age once again. This thriving dynamic place has gracefully transitioned from one of the Southeast’s best-kept secrets to one of its hottest destinations.

It is rapidly becoming known as a paradise for outdoor lovers. The city will surprise you, engage you and charm you with countless restaurants, shops, a waterfall and gorgeous scenery, all of which can be seen by walking, biking or even a Segway tour. If you enjoy family activities, this is a site you will love. Whether you’re looking for hiking, Topgolf, escape rooms or zip-lining, Greenville has it. If you are a foodie, boy, are you going to be pleasantly surprised. It is easy to get around in and has plenty of Southern hospitality.

Greenville has a beautiful, easy-to-access airport for those considering flying to the Feast. The surrounding area also offers a number of outdoor activities, allowing you to take in the natural beauty of this part of the country.

We will be keeping the Feast at the Embassy Suites and Golf Resort, a few minutes from downtown. Each room is a suite (bedroom and separate living room) that includes a fridge and microwave. Also included in the price is a full hot breakfast daily, as well as free drinks and snacks each afternoon. It has its own golf course and indoor and outdoor pools. It also has a large pavilion and lawn area where we will host additional activities.

We hope you will consider joining us in Greenville for what we anticipate will be an outstanding location to keep God’s Feast. For further information, go to visitgreenvillesc.com.
