Who doesn’t love a good comeback story? We know we do and we are partial to this one so thought we would share.
This 18 hole course began as Sebastian Hills and opened in 2000. The course featured several large ponds, natural streams, rolling terrain and concrete cart paths throughout the entire course. It operated until its final season in 2017 and closed. It was listed for sale in 2018. During the listing period, it remained closed and was completely unmaintained in that timeframe with the exception of holes 13-15 which the neighbors of Curtis Lane kept up in hopes of an eventual reopening.
There were a few interested parties along the way but no deals finalized until late August of 2021. In stepped residents of the area with a dream and a vision for the property to reopen and come back even better! And so it began. Mowers showed up instantly from friends and neighbors and we got to work before the ink was dry on the closing statement.
So what did it look like when we got our hands on it? Well it was a mess. Here are a few pics that show what we were up against.
