Our Land Use, Zoning & Environmental Group attorneys help clients successfully navigate the many issues and nuances that often arise with golf course redevelopment projects. We have experience negotiating with homeowners’ associations and surrounding residents who are most greatly impacted by the redevelopment, in addition to assisting golf course owners with revisions to deed restrictions and HOA declarations.

We have strong relationships with local government staff and elected officials that enable us to find solutions that keep our clients’ projects moving forward while protecting the interests of the neighbors and creating a catalyst for economic development. We also frequently assist clients with identifying potential environmental, flood plain and stormwater issues that may arise.

Our team has represented developers in connection with entitlements for both residential and commercial redevelopment of golf courses in master planned communities. We have experience advising clients on projects that entail removal of the entire golf course, as well as projects involving revision of the golf course layout to allow for redevelopment on property deemed in excess. We have worked with golf course owners whose courses may already be closed or are still open for play.
