Residents of Grand Blanc are not giving up on making their voices heard regarding the future of the now abandoned golf course on Perry Road. Once again, the plans for the old The Jewel will be presented and the locals are ready to react.

In January, The Jewel’s new owners, Statewide Management, LLC., based in Macomb Country, Mich., had hinted at plans for the property. At that time, Grand Blanc City officials reported that the new owners had discussed changes, including developing the north side of the existing property by omitting 9 holes from the playing course.

Last month, plans surfaced revealing the company planned to add 124 new single-family homes and condominiums to the once-popular golf course location. Along with this announcement plans also omitted part of the once popular public golf course and this was not exactly welcomed by owners who had appreciated their home being located on the course.

At the Greater White Planning Commission meeting for the past few months, many residents expressed their thoughts on the proposed project, citing concerns about property values, traffic and infrastructure. Tonight, Monday September 19, the commission will meet again and residents along the GBPC will hear the plans adjusted by the current owners.

According to ABC12, the new plans call for 52 residents to be built on a new street to be added along the west side of Genesee Road north of Perry Road. This development will be called Queen’s Meadows. Along with this, 91 additional homes would be built on the east side of Genesee Road in an area called Queen’s Highlands.

People wishing to know the complete plans can attend the meeting of the planning commission scheduled from 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Blanc town hall.

OSU to close Hawk’s Nest in Wayne County and sell golf course property https://houread.org/osu-to-close-hawks-nest-in-wayne-county-and-sell-golf-course-property/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 09:45:33 +0000 https://houread.org/osu-to-close-hawks-nest-in-wayne-county-and-sell-golf-course-property/

CANAAN TWP. − Nearly 15 years after the Hawk’s Nest golf course was donated to Ohio State University, OSU announced that it would close all 18 holes by Dec. 15 and sell the property.

Rising maintenance costs, aging infrastructure and the inability to use the property for educational purposes drove the decision, according to a press release from the College of Food, Agricultural and Agricultural Sciences. the USO environment.

Hawk's Nest Golf Course was donated to The Ohio State University 15 years ago by Earl and Betty Hawkins.

Associate Dean and CFAES Director Ann Dorrance confirmed the news, adding that the closure will provide funding for construction projects at the Wooster Agriculture Campus.

“It was a tough call, but if our students and teachers don’t use it, then it should go to the private sector,” she said.

The golf course’s future remains uncertain, Dorrance said. It will be up to the next owners.

“Evaluation is still ongoing,” she said, so no asking price has been determined.

A golf course and a classroom in one

Golfers end a round on the 18th green of Hawk's Nest.  The Wayne County Golf Course, owned by Ohio State University, is closing in December, according to an announcement from the university.

While the 18-hole golf course that sits just south of Creston is primarily for golfers, it has been used by OSU students and faculty as part of the CFAES grass program.

According to the OSU website, the program teaches students the science and business of turfs in commercial, residential, and recreational settings. In short, they learn to plan, budget and maintain all types of lawns.
