The course was formerly owned by developer John Byram, who appeared before county commissioners multiple times seeking a rezoning for a senior citizens development on the property. He intended to open an “executive” style course, which would have featured numerous par 3’s instead of a par 72 setup. But that plan was never realized. Byram closed the course the summer of 2010 amid financial troubles.%u200B
