Golf Club to Discuss Growth With Neighbors

April 25, 1998|LISA ADDISON

Two meetings for residents and environmentalists who may have questions about a proposed golf course addition at Strawberry Farms Golf Club are scheduled today and Sunday at the club.

Both meetings will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Discussion will be led by owners of the club, including Doug DeCinces, former third baseman for the Angels and the Baltimore Orioles.

An area being considered for part of the expansion is a small parcel on Quail Hill, which residents have twice voted to preserve.

The expansion of the popular course, where a round of play costs $85 weekdays and $125 on weekends, would add four to five holes on a part of the preserve area. The plan would require changing the zoning designation of 84 acres, owned by the Irvine Co., from open space to recreation. The change to the city's general plan would require approval from voters.

The City Council recently postponed a decision on whether to hold a special election on the issue. The election would cost about $75,000. The issue will be back before the council in May.

Strawberry Farms Golf Club is at 11 Strawberry Farms Road, Irvine.
