Crystal Lake Golf Club in Deerfield Beach

Another golf course in South Florida is a candidate for redevelopment.

The Broward County Planning Council last week recommended approval of a plan to build 415 houses and townhouses at the Crystal Lake Golf Club in Deerfield Beach.

The Broward County Commission will vote Aug. 22 on the proposed redevelopment of the 109-acre Crystal Lake golf property.

The redevelopment plan also is pending a decision by Deerfield Beach city commissioners whether to rezone Crystal Lake and approve a site plan.

Miami-based developer Stefan Hoyer proposed construction of 290 houses and 125 townhouses on the property, a development that would be known as Hoyer Homes a Crystal Lake. His proposal also would encircle the property with a 100-foot-wide water buffer for storm water drainage.

The developer would keep a minimum of 4.5 acres at the 109-acre property as an open space and would build an emergency medical services facility on the property for the Deerfield Beach Fire Department.

Hoyer also is redeveloping the old Raintree Golf & Country Club in Pembroke Pines.

In the last 10 years, the number of golf courses in Broward County has fallen from 61 to about 45 due to redevelopment and other reasons.
