Topgolf will open the doors to its latest Greater Richmond area location today at 9:00 AM. The new, three-level, 55,000-square-foot venue located in the Westwood area of Henrico is the company’s 57th location worldwide. The complex will feature high-tech entertainment and gaming, climate-controlled hitting bays, a renowned menu, hand-crafted cocktails, local Hardywood craft beer, corporate and social event spaces, music and more.
The new entertainment venue will serve as Topgolf’s first location to have a Topgolf Swing Suite inside its complex, providing an immersive social experience in a comfortable lounge setting to play and enjoy food and beverage. With a massive screen and selection of virtual games (including famous golf courses, baseball, hockey and zombie dodgeball), the Topgolf Swing Suite will provide a one-of-a-kind simulation designed for golfers and non-golfers alike. This winter, Topgolf will also open a mini-golf course on the property.
“The Greater Richmond area is an important community for Topgolf as we continue to create moments that matter at venues throughout Virginia,” said Topgolf Chief Executive Officer Dolf Berle. “Our newest venue represents a bold and purposeful approach to growth in Virginia’s capital and will showcase some of Topgolf’s innovative technology, including Toptracer, which is the same technology seen on TV that traces the flight path of the golf ball.”
Topgolf’s goal is to connect the people and organizations of Greater Richmond in meaningful ways through its special blend of technology, entertainment, food, and beverage. Guests can enjoy point-scoring games using microchipped balls that instantly show performance data, including accuracy and distance, on a TV screen in the bay. Year-round programming includes events for kids and families, social leagues, golf tournaments, lessons, and much more.
Topgolf Richmond will offer a heroes discount (10% off gameplay and 20% off memberships) for military, fire, police and EMS personnel, as well as other initiatives such as Youth Play It Forward, which allows high school golf teams and charities serving youth to practice for free Monday – Thursday from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. The new venue will also work with local schools, teams, and organizations to generate funds for their cause by hosting spirit nights at Topgolf Richmond. In addition to local initiatives, Topgolf Richmond will work with national partners including Make-A-Wish Foundation and Bunkers in Baghdad.
The new Topgolf venue is located at 2308 Westwood Avenue in Henrico County. More than 400 full- and part-time Associates have been hired in advance of the opening.
