After Topgolf shanked on minority- and women-owned participation in construction, Birmingham terminated tax incentives

Topgolf, the national chain of high-tech driving range and entertainment venues, was coming to Birmingham. In December 2016, the company, along with St. Louis-based ARCO Murray Construction Inc., signed an inclusion agreement with the City of Birmingham with a goal of 30 percent participation by minority- and women-owned firms in the construction of the huge facility on land lying just east of the Birmingham-Jefferson County Convention Center.
