Island West, is a gated community in Bluffton, SC with an 18-hole golf course and club. Since April 2020, that golf course has been closed, and subsequently, on the market for sale.
The golf course was never owned by the community. Until now. The Island West homeowner’s association (HOA) has “overwhelmingly” agreed to purchase the course in order to stop re-zoning and development plans.
Homeowner’s feared there would be an adverse effect on property values had the golf course been re-developed into multi-family housing and commercial property. The current plans are to reopen the golf course and make it fully operational again.
- Island West consists of 258 homes along SC-278 between SC-170 and Buckwalter Parkway
- The purchase price of the golf course is $1.45 million
- The HOA plans to finance the purchase which is projected to close on December 15th
- It is unknown at this time how much of the purchase will be assessed on the homeowners of the community, but that it will be spread out over 5 years
