Up to 70 acres of the beleaguered Tiger Point Golf Club would become a Santa Rosa County park under a tentative agreement reached Tuesday morning by officials of the county and City of Gulf Breeze.
In a closed door meeting at Gulf Breeze City Hall, the leaders focused on a proposal under which the city would sell part of the money-losing golf club to the county at a “deeply discounted price,” Mayor Matt Dannheisser told the Navarre Press.
“There could be soccer fields, lacrosse fields and walking trails. Things that the public would get more use out of than an expanded golf course,” Dannheisser said.
The meeting was supposed to be open to the public, but Gulf Breeze’s city council invoked a section of state law to first close and then delay a scheduled “conflict resolution” hearing.
