Greenville County officials confirmed Tuesday that plans to build a Topgolf location in Greenville have been withdrawn.

The Greenville County Planning Commission met Monday to discuss the proposed development, which featured a golf course layout , a restaurant, and other structures on the property.

The withdrawal does not necessarily mean there will not be a location built in Greenville, but no further details were released.

Officials announced that Topgolf was looking to build a Greenville location in early October.

"We don’t have a confirmed venue there at this time, but it is on our radar," said Morgan Wallace, a spokesperson for Topgolf. "I hope to have some exciting news to share with you in the future! "

Topgolf currently has 24 locations that bring in about 8 million people each year, the company says.

Golfers visiting Topgolf locations can hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot's accuracy and distance and award points, all which enjoying food, beverages, air-conditioned hitting bays and hundreds of HDTVs, per the company’s website. The company said Topgolf is the only entertainment center of its kind.

Topgolf considered Greenville as one of several cities where 9 new locations will be constructed.

Though an official construction site had not been selected, the artist renderings below show one possible site on Garlington Road near I-85:
