Throughout June and July, 13th Floor Homes will be holding section meetings with homeowners to discuss the fate of their beloved golf course – and views.
Originally created by Tamarac founder and developer Ken Behring in 1968, The Woodlands Country Club is a golf course community consisting of some 900 homes, some estate sized, most much more modest, but all featuring a unique architecture more fitting in Palm Springs than South Florida with its ever-pervasive Mediterranean facades. The 36-hole course was designed by world-famous golf course architect Robert Von Hagge and PGA Tour player Bruce Devlin. The greens are lined with lush patches of trees and brush, and numerous lakes and canals that give the course its beauty. The thirty-six individual links snake their way throughout the whole community, affording most homeowners a beautiful golf course view to take in while they enjoy their morning coffee.
While originally member-owned, the course was sold to Canadian corporation ClubLink when it fell upon hard times in 2011. However, like other underperforming courses across the country, ClubLink’s inability to turn the course profitable has forced it to put it on the market. Currently, 13th Floor has an option to buy the course which is contingent upon the Tamarac city commission giving their approval for the plans.
During the months of June and July, meetings have been scheduled with the eight sections that make up the community, however, there has been no inclusive neighborhood meeting involving all residents – at least not at this time.
The Section 1 meeting will be held on June 20, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section 2 TBD.
Section 3 will be held on June 21, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section 4 TBD.
Section 5 will be held on June 27, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section 6 will be held on July 5, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section 7 will be held on June 26, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section 8 will be held on June 28, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Section meetings will be held at section clubhouses or neighboring clubhouses. Please contact your section president for details.
