Germantown Country Club Closing

Multiple sources have provided us with copies of this letter that was sent to members of the Germantown Country Club.

With this announcement there are bound to be plenty of questions about the future of this property. First let’s cover some facts about the property.

  • Owner: Mary C Anderson Revocable Living Trust
  • Size: 178.6 Acres
  • Zoning: Currently Zoned Residential
  • 2018 Assessed Value $1.6 Million
  • Substantial part of the land is in flood zone

The big question everyone has is what will happen to the land and what will be built there? All we know for sure is that the club is ceasing operations. The owners have provided no indication what they intend to do with the land. They could choose to do some sort of development on their own or they could sell the land whole or in pieces. An appeal to change the zoning would be needed for anything other than residential development. Even a PUD (or Zero Lot Line Homes) would require review and approval of the Board of Zoning and Appeals, Planning Commission and Board of Mayor and Aldermen. For that matter, even a residential neighborhood would need approval.

We probably will not see detailed plans until the owners begin the process for approving any of their proposed changes to the property. We will be watching this closely and helping you stay informed about what plans come forward for this land.
