Construction is now underway on Louisville’s first Topgolf at the Oxmoor Center, despite a legal challenge.

Fencing is now up around the former Sears store at the mall on Shelbyville Road.

The team at Oxmoor is also working on demolition and construction plans. Sears will be torn down and the new Topgolf building will fit in the same space.

Topgolf has been approved by the Planning Commission and then Metro Council.

The Planning Commission hosted two public meetings, which were packed, to hear people on both sides of the issue. Ultimately, the group voted unanimously to approve the project, and Metro Council was not far behind.

Residents of the City of Hurstbourne have filed an appeal of those decisions. Regardless of that legal action, Oxmoor is defending its decision to start construction.To see more on this story click here!
