GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Admar Homes purchased the Greencastle Greens Golf Club this week, concluding years of uncertainty for homeowners in their Greens at Greencastle development, who feared the golf course's potential demise.
Admar Homes, the original developer of the Greens at Greencastle, a subdivison adjacent to the golf course, purchased the golf course Tuesday from Greencastle GIBG LLC.
The purchase of the golf course comes after several years of litigation over GIBG's proposed development of the 18-hole golf course into homes. In 2006, GIBG submitted plans for the development to Antrim Township.
Greens at Greencastle LP, a name assumed by Admar Homes, filed a lawsuit to stop the development, claiming a deed restriction required the land must always be used as a golf course. Admar Homes won the lawsuit in federal court. GIBG appealed the ruling in October, but all litigation ceased when both sides indicated their intentions to settle out of court, according to court documents.
