Will TopGolf Make it To El Paso? – Some Issues Arise For the Golf Fun Chain
TopGolf officials made some edits to the plan for their national golf driving range to some to El Paso and it is saying it now needs $5.1 million of city tax incentives to make it happen in the Sun City. A spokeswoman for the chain stated in an email to the El Paso Times that chain had always planned on making it's way to El Paso but now after some revisions of the plan, they will need the additional city tax funds to make it happen. It is not stating that it won't come to El Paso but that the city incentives would make the expansion happen faster.
Another reason for the city tax incentives is that El Paso will be the smallest market where the company opens a full-size 102-bay facility. City Council is set to vote on the incentive package at its meeting on Tuesday. If he incentives are approved by the city, the Dallas based company would need to start construction by 2017. The location is set for the westside in the Montecillo area.
