PHOTOS: Topgolf opens 14-hole mini-golf course at its location in Westwood

The 21st century, mini-golf course and putting green was designed by golf course architects and features synthetic-turf, flowing contours, and bunkers that are technical enough for advanced golfers while remaining fun and playful enough for beginners.

Topgolf, which recently opened its 57th location at 2308 Westwood Avenue in October, unveiled a new 14-hole mini-golf course on Friday, expanding the entertainment options available at the facility.

The new mini-golf course is Topgolf’s third location to feature an adjacent mini-golf option. The 21st century, mini-golf course and putting green was designed by golf course architects and features synthetic-turf, flowing contours, and bunkers that are technical enough for advanced golfers while remaining fun and playful enough for beginners.

The course will be open during Topgolf Richmond’s regular operating hours. In addition to miniature golf, the 62,000 square foot Topgolf Richmond location offers 72 climate-controlled hitting bays on three levels, virtual games, three outside patios, 200+ HDTVs, a full-service restaurant and bars, private event spaces, and a lower-level lounge with complimentary foosball.

Official VCU Game Summary

Score: VCU 69, Morgan State 54
Location: Richmond, Va. (Stuart C. Siegel Center)
Records: VCU 2-0, Morgan State 1-2

The short story: VCU senior forward Brandon Johns Jr. scored a game-high 15 points and converted several critical second-half baskets as VCU pulled away late from plucky Morgan State Saturday night at the Siegel Center.

OPENING TIP

  • Johns connected on 6-of-10 from the floor and grabbed four rebounds for the Black and Gold
  • Senior forward David Shriver and redshirt sophomore Jamir Watkins also scored double figures with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Watkins was one rebound away from a double-double as he snagged nine boards
  • Junior guard Ace Baldwin Jr. had a team-high five assists along with nine points. He also tied a career-high with seven steals
  • Junior guard Zeb Jackson set a new career-high in points with nine

THE DIFFERENCE

  • VCU turned over Morgan State 21 times and scored 26 points off those miscues
  • The Rams held a 28-27 halftime lead, but used a 10-0 run, punctuated by a Baldwin 3-pointer, to take a 53-41 lead with 7:42 remaining. The Bears closed within seven, at 57-50, but VCU scored seven straight, including a back-breaking three by Shriver from the left wing to push the Black and Gold ahead 64-50 with 3:19 left
  • VCU shot .500 (24-of-48) from the field, compared to Morgan State’s .333 (21-of-63). That advantage carried over to beyond the arc, where the Rams outshot the Bears .368 (7-of-19) to .278 (5-of-18) from 3-point range
  • The Rams’ bench players stepped up big, outscoring the Bears’ bench 24-16
  • The Black and Gold led for 34:08 out of the 40 minutes, while Morgan State only led for 4:02

NOTABLE

  • This marks the eighth straight win in the Siegel Center for the Rams
  • With the victory, the Rams are now 20-2 all-time against teams from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC)

UP NEXT
The Rams hit the road for the Legends Classic tournament at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. They open up tournament play on Wednesday., Nov. 16 at 8:30 p.m. against Pac-12 foe Arizona State. Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m. and it will be streamed live on ESPN+.
