A yet-to-be named group of local investors has plans to build an upscale golf driving range with at least two restaurants in northwest Oklahoma City near the John Kilpatrick Turnpike.
The Oklahoma City Planning Commission on Thursday approved plans for the 61-stall golf driving range that would include two restaurants that would also serve mixed drinks.
Called Skybox, the development would include a 61,618-square-foot, two-story building on a 24-acre golf driving range that would include leasable space for meetings, banquets and other events.
The developer, which is using shell company Origin LLC to pursue its application with the city, declined an interview with The Oklahoman.
Oklahoma City attorney Dennis Box, who represented Origin at the Planning Commission, would say only that Origin was “a group of local investors.”
The venue would be built on a piece of vacant land on Highland Park Boulevard just off the John Kilpatrick Turnpike that is owned by Oklahoma City real estate investor Tom Blanton, according to property records.
The investment group wants to purchase the land to develop the driving range, Box said.
