Tuesday’s decision was almost five years in the making. Discussions over the future of the course included a proposal by developer Ron Cowan to build homes on a portion of the complex site. That plan was rejected by the council.

Both firms submitted extensive proposals on how to make the course profitable by fixing current problems and attracting more golfers.
