Apparently, Fort Worth can’t hold its golf.

For the second time since it opened in early May, patrons of Topgolf Fort Worth escaped serious injury after falling from one of the deluxe driving range’s elevated platforms.

Two adult males celebrating a bachelor party, according to a source, sustained minor injuries after falling around 10 p.m. Friday. The men fell about 14 feet from the second level of the three-level structure.

Alcohol was served to the group, a source said, but it was unclear Friday night whether inebriation played a role in the accident.

Topgolf issued a statement after the incident.

“We are relieved it appears that the guests are expected to be okay. This was not a trip-and-fall situation; there was rough-housing that took place, which is a violation of our posted safety rules,” the statement read.

Topgolf closed after the incident and handed out vouchers to guests who were forced to leave early.

A man fell from the second level into safety netting on May 17 and was uninjured.
