Homes on big lots could herald future for defunct AZ golf courses

From the air, the former Santa Rita Golf Course still looks like you could get a round in, albeit on grass that has seen greener days.

On the ground, however, residents say it has been overrun with desert flora since the course southeast of Tucson closed in 2011.

Whether the property would ever be a golf course again had been uncertain until recently.

The Pima County Planning and Zoning Commission approved plans last Tuesday to develop two lots on what was once 40 acres of greens and fairways, though the Board of Supervisors still has to sign off on it.
