The sale of two parcels on opposite ends of the club’s property for the development of new homes has been approved by shareholders of the 106-year-old private, member-owned club outside of Minneapolis. The club’s A.W. Tillinghast-designed golf course would not be affected by the sale, but its driving range would need to be reconfigured.
The 106-year-old private, member-owned Golden Valley (Minn.) Country Club outside of Minneapolis plans to sell off some of its property to be turned into homes, CCXMedia.org reported, citing a report by the Minneapolis- St. Paul Business Journal.
The Business Journal reported that Golden Valley’s shareholders voted to sell two parcels of land totaling roughly 4.5 acres. The club’s A.W. Tillinghast-designed golf course would not be affected by the sale, but its driving range would need to be reconfigured.
The two parcels to be sold are on opposite ends of the club’s property, CCX Media.org reported. One, on the northwest side, is about 1.5 acres and could be converted into low- to medium-density housing. The other, on the southwest side, is roughly 3 acres and could become medium- to high-density housing.
The sale of the parcels and construction could occur by March 2021, CCXMedia.org reported.
