For half a century, many Glendale golfers felt at home on the links of Glen Lakes Golf Course. Now, some Glendale residents will call it home as a development of 173 houses is planned for the shuttered municipal golf course.
City Council closed the course in early 2019, which opened in 1966 and was bought by the city in 1979, despite pleas from residents in the area to keep it open. During a Planning Commission meeting Thursday night, several residents spoke in opposition of houses going up on what was once 43 acres of greenspace in their neighborhood, with a few calling for the golf course to reopen. That ship seems to have sailed though, as City Council has already sold the land to a housing developer.
