A closed-down golf course in Boca Raton has sold for $33M after years of being mired in litigation. The Mizner Trail Golf Club was purchased by a West Palm Beach County real estate company that may build additional residential homes on the land after leveling the golf course.
Residents Fighting Against Redevelopment
The 125-acre golf course was the subject of heated litigation on both sides as residents surrounding the area fought against the redevelopment of the course for many years. They introduced lawsuits to halt development on the property, however, lost in 2014 when a Palm Beach County commission approved the area for redevelopment. However, it wasn’t until the end of 2019 that the golf course sold.
Meeting New Housing Needs
Housing trends in Florida are heading towards easy-to-build, single-family homes that can be rented and are simple to maintain and revamp in between tenants. The Mizner Trail Golf Club will likely be used as land for these new types of rentals, despite the disapproval of nearby residents. It is unknown if this is the confirmed plan for the property though, and construction may not begin for some time.
As the need for housing in Florida continues to grow, more areas like this shuttered golf course may be sold for redevelopment into functional spaces that can provide homes to residents in need.
