National home builder Pulte Group has submitted a smaller development proposal for the former Oak Tree Golf Course, a 139.2 acre site in Oakland Park that they have under contract from Blackwood Partners. The trend of golf courses being repurposed is a familiar story line in South Florida due to high operation and maintenance costs. According to Marty Kiar, a Broward property appraiser, at least three of 45 golf courses in the county have closed in the last five years.
Residents of Oakland Park raised concerns about density and traffic in response to the original 850 home proposal, which Pulte Group downsized to 288 homes and 117 townhouses. The revised plan also preserves 40 acres for green spaces and fitness trails, and includes a buffer zone to separate the community from existing homes near the greenway. The defunct Oak Tree Golf Course stopped operating about ten years ago.
The development is pending Broward County’s approval for the land-use change and site-plan application, represented by attorney Dennis D. Mele. Prices for the townhouses would start in the $300,000s and range from $400,000 to $600,000 for the one and two-story homes.
