An attorney told the Arizona Court of Appeals last week that the former Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course can lie fallow, “in it’s natural state’’ that owner Wilson Gee does not need to rebuild it.

“The intent was, if you are going to use the property, it has to be a golf course, but you don’t have to use the property,’’ said Dan Maynard, an attorney representing Gee.

But two out of three judges hearing the case noted that the deed restrictions on the property specifically require a golf course, echoing the ruling of Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah who handed homeowners seeking the course’s rebirth a major victory in January 2018.
