An old golf course may soon become a big development.

A Spartanburg based developer has just purchased the 100-plus acres of land that once served as the site for the Bonnie Brae Golf course.

Mark III Properties purchased the land on May 15, for a cool $5.4 million, according to the deed.

Since last year, the nearly 200 acres of land on which the course sat were officially zoned for “low-density residential land use.” In other words, you can now build residential homes and home-based businesses, as well as community organizations and some types of commercial and agriculture structures so long as they meet specific standards, just not apartment complexes, condos, or other large structures.

Back in July of 2017, Mark III Properties purchased a neighboring parcel of land, about 70 acres of woodland, for $1.6 million.

Still no word on what any development plans could look like for the area.

The shuttered golf course had been a mainstay of the area for nearly 60 years, before he closed last year.
