Residents fighting against the development of a closed Florida golf course which could be used as housing
Plans currently show 800 new homes, including apartments and townhomes, would be built at the site.
The Florida golf community, which was meant to own a course “in perpetuity”, now has to decide whether to buy it
It’s a step toward finalizing a proposed settlement that would stop a developer from building on the former golf course.
“It will continue to happen,” one local player said.
“The golf course is the heart and soul of Etowah … we don’t need any more RV parks. There are already five in the area.”
Plans to revive the course could fall into jeopardy unless its former clubhouse becomes part of the development deal.
The possibility of developing a second golf course in this small town in Michigan is under consideration
The golf course has been a fixture in the community for more than 30 years.
