The Owners of the Only House Next to Augusta National Aren’t Interested in the Golf Club’s Millions

Andrew Redington/Getty Images

Augusta National has spent the past two decades buying up the property around its borders, purchasing more than 100 properties across 270 acres by offering owners prices that were too good to refuse.

According to NJ.com, the golf club spent more than $40 million to bulldoze the neighborhood once sat across from Gate 6-A at the Masters—save for one unassuming brick house that no amount of money can buy.

Herman and Elizabeth Thacker built the three-bedroom home at 1112 Stanley Road in 1959. The first time Augusta National approached them about buying the house where they raised their two children, the Thackers flatly refused. Not even seven figures could sway the couple.

“Money ain’t everything,” Herman told NJ.com in 2016.

It’s a principle that the storied golf club, which turns its back on millions of dollars each year to preserve the authenticity of the Masters Tournament, can

Developers looking to put 861 homes on DeLand former golf course

For about 50 years the site at 800 E. Euclid Ave. in DeLand was a hilly, par-72 golf course with narrow fairways.

Sandhill Golf Course closed in 2017, and the former fairways have become overgrown while the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse remains boarded up.

But this month the DeLand City Commission gave Orlando-based Elevation Development the final nod of approval to designate the former golf course as a brownfield site.

Eventually, Elevation Development plans to put 541 single-family homes and 320 multi-family units on the approximately 168-acre site, according to city documents.

The city’s Planning Board at 5 p.m. Wednesday will get a look at a request from the owners of the parcel, Sandhill Enterprises, LLC, to change the property’s zoning to Beresford Springs Planned Development.

Before the cleanup of the site can begin, a Brownfield Advisory Committee, a role filled by the city’s Economic

As Cabot Brand Expands, Saint Lucia Homesites Go On Sale Along Coore-Crenshaw Golf Course

As successful and popular as Cabot Cape Breton has been since opening just under a decade ago in “the middle of nowhere” in Nova Scotia, co-owner Ben Cowan-Dewar says he was absolutely positive about one thing.

There wouldn’t be golf at the Canadian getaway’s two internationally-ranked courses in December, January or February.

That was the Cabot team’s impetus to find a seasonal offset that would appeal to the resort’s ever-growing client base. And that’s what led Cowan-Dewar, who was familiar with the Caribbean market from his time working in the golf travel business, to discover the property that would become Cabot Saint Lucia.

Situated along 1 ½ miles of coastline,

County commission paves the way for housing development on Calusa golf course

Miami-Dade County commissioners voted 9-3 to lift a covenant restricting development on the defunct Calusa golf course despite the pleas of 40 homeowners who said their West Kendall neighborhood would be devastated by a 500-house subdivision on the old fairways.

The decision at Thursday’s zoning hearing is a victory for property owner Facundo Bacardi and developer GL Homes, allowing them to move forward with plans to build on 168 acres of the former Calusa Country Club at 9400 SW 130th Ave., which has been closed since 2011.

The 99-year covenant on the property stipulated that the land had to remain a golf course until 2067 unless 75 percent of the 146 homeowners living directly on the course agreed to remove it. Signatures of 123 ring homeowners were presented to commissioners, and the covenant, like the once-popular golf club, was history.

Golf: Red Tail GC in Devens is still for sale – News – telegram.com

If you have $6 million, you can buy Red Tail Golf Club in Devens.

The upscale, 18-hole public course opened in 2002 and the original owners, Devens Golf Course Limited Partnership, have decided to move on.

“I think it’s just time,” general manager Chris Kasheta said. “They’ve been at it for 20-something years, and none of them are young men.”

Kasheta said he has seen a couple of potential buyers drop by to ask questions the last few weeks, but the club has not been sold yet.

Red Tail has no members, but those who play there regularly have told Kasheta they hope that whoever buys the property will keep it as a golf course. Actually, that has to be the case.

Red Tail has 42 years remaining on a ground lease with MassDevelopment, a quasi-public state agency, so the property must remain a golf course and primarily a daily-fee

Denver Starting Small-Area Planning Process for Park Hill Golf Club Property

Denver will soon initiate a small-area planning process for the 155-acre property that includes the now-closed Park Hill Golf Club, and the developer that bought the property has agreed to participate.

“I want to reaffirm our commitment to honestly listening to the people who will bring this project to life and to a transparent and equitable dialogue,” says Kenneth Ho, the project lead at Westside Investment Partners, in a statement announcing the agreement. “We recognize that there is a higher bar for community benefits on this site, and we are committed to ensuring that the end result of this project reflects the values and needs of the community.”

The announcement comes two months after Denver City Council voted against referring a measure to the ballot that would have required voter approval for the city to lift any conservation easements, which limit development possibilities for the property. For decades, the Park
