GREENSBORO, N.C. — Business is booming here in Greensboro. Soon, you may not have to travel to Charlotte or Raleigh to go to the golf driving range Topgolf.
The city announced Tuesday night that Topgolf is looking to move to the Triad.
City Council approved a resolution to reimburse an "unnamed attraction" for sewer improvements. The vote was 9-0.
City Council members confirmed that the attraction is Topgolf.
Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan said Tuesday night's vote is "one step closer" to bringing a Topgolf to the Triad, but stopped short of calling it a sure thing.
If the company decides to come to Greensboro, the driving range/bar and restaurant would set up shop on eight acres of land, near I-40, Bridford Parkway, and Guilford College Road.
Brent Christenson, Chief Executive Officer of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce shared his excitement about the possibility of TopGolf coming to Greensboro.
"I think right now, because of all the momentum we're seeing in Greensboro, we're seeing a lot of opportunities here so people are taking notice of Greensboro. We're getting on people's radar screens and this is just another example of that."
Councilmember Hugh Holston said attractions like Topgolf are a trickle-down effect from other major projects underway, like Boom Supersonic and the Toyota Battery plant.
“They're looking for these types of activities. They're looking for the parks, they're looking for the other things that we provide in this community because they're not just coming by themselves, they're bringing their families with them,” Holston said. “This is just going to be another step in the momentum of what's happening in Greensboro. Greensboro booming.”
A representative for Topgolf also said a hotel and other indoor entertainment could come to that same site.
