REPURPOSING Golf Courses: An Amenity in Shared Ownership Communities that Burdens Development of the Land
Society has concerns about meeting future needs to develop land that is affected by both public and private regulations/conditions/restrictions. Restricting use of private and public land to golf courses may no longer serve the best interests of society or even those who include a golf course as a private amenity. Nationally, land use attorneys are being asked to provide ways to repurpose land currently used as golf courses in light of the reduced appeal of this activity and the high costs involved. Learn about sample provisions creating this restricted use and public regulation that supports the use, as well as case law, statutory and political approaches to repurposing.
