The Reno Gazette Journal had this article today that was passed on to the ArrowCreek411 webmaster by Paul Burkett this morning.
The D’Andrea Golf Course in Sparks will be sold at auction later this month and the surrounding community is nervous they may never see the property used as a golf course again.
Homeowners say they hope that the golf course, which has gone to seed since it shut down in 2012, will be sold as one unit when Washoe County tries to sell it on April 22, but they fear that the high cost will force the auctioneers to break up the property’s six parcels. That would effectively eliminate the chances of the land becoming a golf course again.
In addition, the new owners will have a hard time building anything new on the parcels since it’s designated to only be used for a golf course. It’s a catch-22 that doesn’t seem to have an easy solution.

There are several rumors going around. Some already had parts of it sold. This article focusses on the people who wanted a golf course in the first place. So, it will be interesting to see what really does happen later this month. RGJ also has many photographs on-line of the state of disrepair that the site is in. I don’t think the land looks any worse than the HOA land I look out on from my house.
Northgate Golf Course is being repurposed. So, who knows what will happen here.
Even if the FOA closes ArrowCreek, I don’t think our situation would be the same as far as defacement is concerned because we are behind a security gate. I believe wiser stewards of the earth are here.
