Golf course renovation. Bocce courts. And planned housing at Plantation Country Club

By John Sowell

The planned widening of State Street will force the Plantation Country Club to close its golf course for a year while reconfiguring the 18-hole course.

The road widening, scheduled to begin in January 2021, will cut 25 feet of grass in one section and up to 40 feet in another from the course’s northern border at State Street. The No. 9 and No. 10 fairways near the street will have to be reworked.

California developer Will Gustafson, whose Glass Creek LLC bought the Garden City course late last year, plans to develop the State Street frontage that remains, roughly 18 to 20 acres. Gustafson says it will include condominiums and towhhouses facing the course and a small number of retail businesses.
