Golf course closures say less about sport, more about a difficult business by Tod Leonard, SDUT 7/3/2018

High water costs claim golf course, Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club confirms plan to close July 8 by Tod Leonard, SDUT, 6/20/2018

Local golf courses prime properties for housing redevelopment,  2/1/2018 - Watch PQ Glens resident Joe Pierzina's interview with CBS news about the proposed development in our neighborhood. We asked Joe for a comment and here's his response: "I really wished the CBS News 8 report had spent some time covering the serious fire safety issues I explained to them during the interview. My concerns are not just about the loss of open space but how development here will greatly endanger hundreds of people in the neighborhood when it comes to a wild fire evacuation or other types of emergencies. Safety before Development should be a priority before anyone builds on this open space!"
