Topgolf is taking another swing at Greenville.

The Dallas-based company has confirmed that it plans to construct one of its signature driving ranges on a 77-acre property near the intersection of Pelham and Garlington roads. It will anchor Garlington Park, a new mixed-used development that is currently under construction for occupancy in 2019.

Topgolf first announced it was considering Greenville for a new location in March 2016. The company then filed a request with Greenville County to subdivide 73 acres along the two roads for a golf entertainment center, 90-room hotel, and 7,000-square-foot restaurant. But those plans were withdrawn in October.

Caroline Jerome, a spokesperson for Topgolf, said the company’s development team had to withdraw the plans because it was “still working through local approvals.”

Signage depicting a three-story Topgolf facility has since been installed near the intersection of the two roads. The signs also include the logos of The Shopping Center Group, a global retail group, and RealtyLink, a Greenville-based commercial real estate firm.

If plans progress, the facility would mark the second Topgolf location in South Carolina. The company received approval in November to construct a 53,000-square-foot facility in Myrtle Beach. It is expected to create 540 jobs.

Topgolf currently has 30 locations across the country. The company describes itself as a golf entertainment center with competitive golfing games for people of all ages and skill levels. Most Topgolf venues are three levels and include 102 hitting bays for up to six golfers at a time. Players can hit golf balls with computer microchips to track the distance and accuracy of shots.
