If a 100+ degree-day on the course doesn’t sound ideal hop over to TopGolf for fun day of swinging away in a climate-controlled playing “bay” (did we just make a rhyme?). Similar to a bowling lane, TopGolf features an impressive food and drink menu, HDTVs to watch the big game and a music selection that makes every visit feel like a party. Skip the line on Father’s Day by reserving a bay ahead of time which includes two hours of unlimited play for up to six people, plus VIP check-in upon arrival. For info and rezzies visit topgolf.com.

We all know Dad loves a good BBQ and no shindig is complete without yard games. Make dad’s backyard bash the best on the block with Rollors. Rollors combines the best parts of bowling, bocce and horseshoes in one, portable, fun-for-the-whole-family package. Players take turns rolling wooden discs toward an opposing goal post; points are then awarded depending on how and where the discs land. The game is fun, addicting and easy to learn, but challenging to master. What’s even cooler is the game’s inventor is a US Air Force veteran who outsources much of his business processes to other veteran-owned companies. Grab a set at rollors.com.
Does Dad insist on going gift free? Consider making a donation to Ryan House in dads name in lieu of material goods. Ryan House supports dads 24/7, 365 as they love and care for their medically fragile children. A recurring gift or one-time donation in honor of pop will provide direct support to Ryan House fathers. Visit www.ryanhouse.org for more info and to make a gift.
