For the better part of the last year, many have been excited about the prospect of Dallas-based TopGolf opening a facility at Harmony and I-25, on the corner that is technically the town of Timnath. It's been an ongoing "will they or won't they" for some time now.

While nothing has been formally agreed to, the town confirmed last year that town officials have looked for ways to provide incentives for TopGolf to build a facility there as part of the Ladera development.

Since then, while the outdoor golf, food, and entertainment complex does have its fair share of fans across the country, and many in Northern Colorado would love the opportunity to have one here, it also has its share of opponents to the project as well.

Wildlife and environmental impact groups have been opposed to the project for some time.

And now a new group of TopGolf naysayers has come to the forefront, currently collecting signatures to prevent the construction of the facility in somewhat of a creative way. They are putting together and planning to file a petition to hold a special election, asking residents to add a ban for "excessively tall fences over 65 feet in height" to the town’s charter.

Even if you've never been, you're most likely aware that all TopGolf facilities are enclosed in very high nets to keep errant shots inside the play area.

The group is called "Guide Our Growth" and says they're not opposed to development in Timnath, but want to ensure it's appropriate and consistent with the town's plan and vision. They argue TopGolf doesn't fit that vision.

The developer for the Ladera project is hosting a meeting on the subject on February 13, 2023, at 6:30 PM, at the Colorado Youth Outdoors facility in Fort Collins.
