Dan Pacheco, a potential buyer for the Golf Course, held a community meeting at the Stallion Spring's Community Church to get a feel for the interest in the course. Over 175 residents attended. Pacheco indicated he is in negotiations to purchase the course and planned to make a formal offer in July. He plans to keep it a golf course and add things like a miniature golf course, arcade and other entertainment venues. He will not be building a hotel as proposed by the current owner. If the deal goes through he plans to have holes one through nine open by the end of the year. More to come.
