With its 3-story driving range and towering nets taking shape on Westwood Avenue, Topgolf has something miniature up its sleeve ahead of its Richmond launch.
The Dallas-based operator of high-tech golf and entertainment facilities filed plans last month to add a 14-hole mini-golf course at its forthcoming location at 2308 Westwood Ave., next to Interstate 195.
Plans filed with Henrico County show the course would be installed on the southwestern side of the 14-acre site, just outside of the massive netting system that will contain balls flying off the driving range bays.
Topgolf spokeswoman Morgan Schaaf would not expound on the company’s plans, other than to say it would be Topgolf’s third mini-golf course in the country, joining locations in Dallas and Chicago.
Construction is already well underway on the larger driving range, a $25 million, 48,000-square-foot project that will stack three levels of hitting bays.
Schaaf said the company is still on track to open in Richmond in early fall, but no firm date has been set.
