If the residents of that area really cared so much about their golf course, they wouldn’t have let it close in the first place.
The demise of the Jones Creek Golf Course sits SQUARELY in the laps of the then Columbia County Commissioners. Two bodies of water were in need of dredging of silt and sediment — one in Westlake and one in Jones Creek. Storm water fee money was used to dredge one, but was denied for the other. The then Commission Chairman lived in Westlake.
I would assume this is an important first step for us golfers out there who hold out hope that once again balls will fly though the air at Jones Creek when it seemed all hope was lost. Seeing will be believing though……
“If you remove this from the PUD, you basically you destroy the intent and purpose of the PUD, which is a golf course with a golf course community.” I almost lost it when I read this line. I truly feel sorry for the homeowners of Jones Creek. The demise of the golf course I’m sure was devastating, however it has been a wasteland for years now. I have seen no media reports of course development companies fighting for the parcel. Mark Herbert and his wife are great people. They have done a lot of this County. They are here, now. Please reread the first line of this Reply — You have neither here, now.
Rip Jones, you are so right!!! Ron Cross screwed Jones Creek!!
