National home builder PulteGroup has a contract to buy part of a closed golf course in Tamarac from a country club owner.
Pulte could build as many as 152 houses on the 44.1-acre site at the Woodmont Country Club, locate at 7801 Northwest 80 Avenue in Tamarac.
The owner, Woodmont Country Club Inc., previously obtained regulatory approval to build 152 houses on a 9 of 18 closed holes on its golf course. Another 18 holes at the golf course are still open.
Brent Baker, president of the Southeast Florida division of Pulte, told the South Florida Business Journal that Woodmont plans to use proceeds from the nine-hole property sale to build a new clubhouse and to upgrade and reopen nine holes of the golf course, increasing the total number to 27 holes.
Baker also told the business journal that he expects Pulte to close the Woodmont property purchase in the April-May period, to open a sales center by fall, and to finish building the first homes there as early as spring of 2018.
House sizes will be 2,400 square feet to 3,300 square feet, and prices start in the low $400,000s.
Pulte also has begun building houses and townhouses on a former golf course at the Hillcrest Country Club in Hollywood. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
