Legacy Golf Club members can apply for refunds

Members of the semiprivate Legacy Golf Club have been left without a place to play since it was sold and closed July 3.

Members can visit thelegacygc.com and fill out a form to start a refund process, according to Elizabeth Trosper, a spokeswoman for the new ownership group. She said the new owners are responsible for the refunds.

“We have already received several requests and are processing them now,” Trosper said.

Also in the wake of the recent sale, residents living in the surrounding communities are trying to fight the closure and learn more details about the redevelopment plans of the new owners. The residents have focused on the news that the original deed from 1988 states that the property must remain a golf course for 50 years and also a recent statement by City of Henderson spokesperson David Cherry.

“City ordinances also require that landscaping be maintained up to code, and we will continue to enforce these policies to ensure compliance by the property owners,” Cherry said.

Black Mountain bankruptcy

Another Southern Nevada golf course might be undergoing changes. Black Mountain Golf and Country Club in Henderson filed for bankruptcy March 30, and part of the reorganization plan might be for some of the land to be sold for redevelopment.

Black Mountain opened in 1958 as nine holes and now features 18. For a brief time, the course featured 27 holes after members voted to expand the course.

Goldstein also qualified in 2010.
