Background of closing

In February 2017, Western Golf Properties (WGP) purchased the Vellano Golf Course. WGP stated their intent to invest in the golf course and restore the golf course back to a private club. WGP’s CEO Bobby Heath solicited memberships from the public promising increased services and improved conditions. At the same time, WGP began to meet with developers to build homes on the golf course property. By mid 2017, just a few months after purchasing the golf course, WGP met with the Vellano HOA Board of Directors indicating the golf course was losing money and they need to redevelop the golf course into residential homes. Bobby Heath informed the Vellano HOA Board that the Vellano Golf Course was purchased for its land development potential, seemingly contradicting his assertion that they hoped to return the course back to its former championship status.

The best kept secret in the Inland Empire. Imagine playing Country Club for 40 dollars with a cart, hot dog and drink. WOW! Vellano was once a private course that is now open to the public. We teed off at 8 am and only saw one twosome behind us. This is a beautiful layout worthy of playing again and again.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

The golf course was in good shape. A few holes were not to my liking based on layout, but overall it was a fun course.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
