Owner Richard Ajamian confirmed that a developer has made an offer on the 120-acre golf course, and has until October 31 to act on the deal. If finalized, the developer would likely use the land for a housing development.
The golf course facility at Liverpool (N.Y.) Public Golf & Country Club has been a mainstay in the community for years, but the club has reported that an offer to purchase the 120-acre golf course is on the table from a developer, the Syracuse (N.Y.) Time Warner Cable News reported.
Owner Richard Ajamian confirmed that the developer has until October 31 to act on the deal. If finalized, the developer would likely use the land for a housing development, the News reported.
“Obviously Liverpool has been a structured golf course here in the area for over fifty years and very popular to a lot of our customers,” said David Bacon, General Sales Manager of Golf Galaxy, a golf equipment store. “But I’m looking at it as a positive because I think other courses will benefit from it.”
Property taxes have become a challenge, Ajamian said, and have prompted him to consider a sale, the News reported.
The country club features 18 holes, a driving range, and a short course for kids. The clubhouse also features a ballroom for special events, the News reported.
