The course in Landenberg, Pa. was built in 1999, but Franklin Township supervisors have now approved a conditional-use application for a future brewery in its 9,200-sq. ft. clubhouse. The Creekside Café had offered dine-in and pickup meals, and also catered banquets and special events, but alcohol sales had never been permitted at the club, with golfers often bringing their own. The course went up for sale in 2019 after a successful tax appeal that reduced its assessment by more than half.
After 20 years, Chisel Creek Golf Club in Landenberg, Pa. will be closing on May 28, the Daily Local News of Exton, Pa. reported.
“There is no better game in the world than golf, and we feel honored to have shared our dream, which started over 30 years ago,” said owners John and Debbie Boxler. “From the fantastic women’s and men’s leagues, golf lessons, camps and outings, the club that started as a trailer became a beautiful building that not only served our golfers but hosted many celebrations. All of those memories we will cherish as we start this new chapter of our lives.”
Boxler had planned to continue to allow golf play as the sale of the 106-acre property continued, but was unable to do so, the Daily Local News reported.
Last month, Franklin Township (Pa.) supervisors considered a conditional-use application for a future craft brewery at the 9,200-sq. ft. Chisel Creek Clubhouse, the Daily Local News reported. The Creekside Cafe offered dine-in and pickup meals and featured catering and banquets and special events.
Alcohol sales were never permitted at Chisel Creek, but golfers often brought their own beer, the Daily Local News reported.
The course was listed for sale last year by Beiler-Campbell Realtors following a successful tax appeal in which taxes were reduced from $56,842 to $24,057, the Daily Local News reported. On Redfin, the property sale was listed as “pending.” The property includes a 3,000-gallon on-site septic system and on-site well.
Chisel Creek Golf Club was built in 1999. Many of the land’s natural features and contours were incorporated into the design of the golf course, enabling architect Bill J. Hirsch, Jr. and construction superintendent Luke Dye, to layout a course that plays a lot more challenging than the scorecard appears, the Daily Local Newsreported.
Golfers wanting to play the course one last time before it closed could do so for rates set at $20 to walk and $25 to ride Monday through Friday, and $25 to walk and $35 to ride on the weekends. The senior rate is $30 and includes a cart.
