Background of closing

In February 2017, Western Golf Properties (WGP) purchased the Vellano Golf Course. WGP stated their intent to invest in the golf course and restore the golf course back to a private club. WGP’s CEO Bobby Heath solicited memberships from the public promising increased services and improved conditions. At the same time, WGP began to meet with developers to build homes on the golf course property. By mid 2017, just a few months after purchasing the golf course, WGP met with the Vellano HOA Board of Directors indicating the golf course was losing money and they need to redevelop the golf course into residential homes. Bobby Heath informed the Vellano HOA Board that the Vellano Golf Course was purchased for its land development potential, seemingly contradicting his assertion that they hoped to return the course back to its former championship status.
