Don't Bogart that Golf Course

Here's something you don't see every day: anti-development forces in a community rallying in support of a golf course. It's happening in Clear Lake, according to an article published by Houston Community Newspapers Online.

The golf course in question is Clear Lake Golf Club. The course's owners say they can't compete with all the new and better golf courses around Houston, and that refurbishing the course will only make their dilemma worse. They want to sell the golf course to developers, who would pave over the course with residential units.

Not so fast, say community activists, who don't want to lose the "green space" in their midst that the golf course represents. It's an interesting article that touches on issues we're likely to see more of as golf courses continue to be built and land continues to be used up.
