Escrow has closed on the sale of the Cherry Hills Golf Course to a private development group, and the golf course is permanently closed.
Menifee City Council member Bob Karwin confirmed the closure in a Facebook post earlier this week. According to Karwin, “The new ownership group has no immediate plans for the future use of the property, but do not intend to operate a golf course.”
The fate of the golf course has been in doubt for several months, with rumors of a sale and reduced hours at the course. This had been the only golf course remaining in the Sun City community following the closure by the same ownership of the North Course in 2017.
“There is one specific rumor floating around that the property was bought by Edison to install a solar panel farm,” wrote Karwin on Facebook. “This is untrue. The new owners are a private development group that builds both residential and commercial properties.
“The property is currently zoned as ‘passive recreation.’ This means, in its current condition, neither residential nor commercial can be built on it without a change to the zoning. Once the transfer of title is complete, the new ownership group is planning a community meeting, possibly as soon as February, to discuss future plans with the residents and get your feedback. I will update you once a date and location for that meeting have been confirmed.”
The identity of the new ownership group has not been revealed.
