Another golfing and restaurant business has officially opened at the site of the former Topgolf in Kingstowne.

Rudy’s — a golf recreation and entertainment facility — opened earlier this month at 6626 South Van Dorn Street. The venue, which is similar to Topgolf, includes a golf driving range, restaurant and bar.

The business is currently in the first phase of opening and is only accepting cash, according to the company. Reservations for bays will not be available for a few months.

The Kingstowne location was Topgolf’s first when it opened 2005. It shuttered in 2020 as the property owner explored redeveloping the site into a residential project. Ruby Tuesday, also located on the site, closed shortly thereafter.

The Fairfax County Planning Commission indefinitely deferred redevelopment plans in November 2021 after the proposal stirred community consternation.

An amendment to the county’s comprehensive plan called for up to 275 residential units and up to 20,000 square feet of retail uses. The change could also boost the commercial component of the project to up to 70,000 gross square feet to make way for a retail anchor like a grocery store.

Shortly after the deferral, the Washington Business Journal reported that Rudy’s was set to take over the former Topgolf site.

The facility is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Guests can take advantage of two levels and 72 bays.
