The course closed for play in July 2010 after losing money for a number of years due to declining play, declining revenue and subsequent decline in upkeep, the spiral of death for a golf course.
As of January 2014 there is news Blackard Global development company plans to develop the property. They would use 40 acres for a European style residential village and retain what was the back 9-holes for a new 9-hole golf course. Seventy-five percent of residents need to approve a change in the property's deed restriction to allow development to move forward.
