Discount airline Allegiant Air has a deal to acquire a golf course near the site of its planned resort in Southwest Florida.

Allegiant offered to acquire the Kingsway Country Club and its 18-hole golf course, and member of the 42-year-old club voted June 30 to accept the offer.

Allegiant expects to close the acquisition in August. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

In addition to the golf course, the Kingsway acquisition includes an 18,000-square-foot clubhouse with dining and event facilities and a pro shop.

Allegiant is planning to build a waterfront resort spanning more than 25 acres in the Charlotte Harbor area of Charlotte County, with as many as 277 hotel rooms and 842 condominium-hotel units.

The development, called Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor, eventually will share the Sunseeker brand with the Kingsway golf property.

John Redmond, the president of Allegiant, personally acquired and assembled the resort development site, located within six miles of Punta Gorda Airport, where Allegiant is the sole passenger airline.

Allegiant announced plans to build the resort in August 2018. Earlier this year, the airline was preparing for a county review of its development plans. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune]Mike Seemuth
