This land previously belonged to Glenmore Limited Associates Partnership, and was given to the community a few years ago when GALP was divesting their assets. Neither the board nor the club knew that this property was given to GCA even though it has been used by the club for many years as part of the driving range.
The Rathburns approached the GCA and asked for their assistance in resolving the issue so that the sale of the club may be completed. They offered a number of potential solutions, a transfer of the land to the club, a trade of land, and exchange of easements as there is currently no legal right for the walking/riding trails to cross the golf club property even though it does in three places.
We are working to resolve the issue in a way that benefits all parties and allows the sale to be completed. The board believes that a successful transition of ownership of the club is in the best interest of all.
