Another Myrtle Beach course to close? Hey, get something in writing!
It looks like the Grand Strand may lose another golf course. A developer told Myrtle Beach online that he plans to buy the South Course at the Deer Track Golf resort and build 500 homes on it.
The sale is pending and if it goes through, plans call for the course to be closed the end of April, according to the publication. There is another course at the resort, the recently renovated Toski Links, that would remain open.
Bill Clark of Bill Clark Homes told the online version of the Sun News he would build “mostly single family and some single-level courtyard homes.”
This has become a vicious cycle for the Myrtle Beach area, which is oversaturated with more than 100 courses. Golf courses are selling out more and more to redevelopment, as real estate values increasingly become more lucrative than the declining golf business. The problem is, many homeowners around the golf coures paid a pretty penny for those golf course views, and many of them feel betrayed. I can see their point.
Let this be a lesson – before you buy a golf course home, make sure you check out plans for future development. Get something in writing if you can, because commerce always trumps the concerns of residents.
