The plan that is the latest in a string to redevelop greens across South Florida now moves to Broward County officials, who must approve changing the land use from recreational to residential.
The Toll Brothers, a development company, would use 23 acres for the homes. The remainder of the 83-acre golf course that hasn’t seen play in four years, would be turned over to Century Village, for use as a park.
Martin Wolf, a resident of Century Village, said this is likely to be the best use of the land.
This new development in Deerfield would not be age-restricted, even though it’s currently inside the city’s largest retirement community. It would have its own separate entrance on Goolsby Boulevard and be walled off from Century Village.
This development, and another one for Crystal Lake Golf Club, will be the first new housing stock built in Deerfield Beach in 25 years, said Commissioner Todd Drosky.
