Dry for 8 years, some Ahwatukee Lakes filling up

By Paul Maryniak | Ahwatukee Foothills News

For the first time in eight years, some Ahwatukee Lakes are starting to fill up with something other than storm water.

Vowing to open the long-dormant Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course by November, owner Wilson Gee hit a milestone last month as he began filling some of the site’s lakes.

But it’s an open question whether his work so far will satisfy Superior Court Judge Theodore Campagnolo’s order that the course be open for business by the fall 2022, threatening Gee with $3.5 million in contempt-of-court penalties. Gee closed the course in 2013.

The attorney representing the two homeowners who in 2014 sued Gee filed a contempt action Tuesday accusing Gee of violating the judge’s order not planning to restore a true 18-hole executive course or  fill all the lakes. Attorney Tim Barnes asked Campagnolo to impose a $500,000 penalty, stating, “Completion means completion. Not substantial completion. Not partial completion. Completion means that the golf course is open for golfing on all 18 holes.”
