Lee County--A property deal between Lee County and the owner of the Grand Island Club is in the works, and could land the County a private golf course.

Lee County is interested in purchasing this 25 acre tract of land next to the Wal-Mart on Ledo Road. The property, worth an estimated 3.5 million dollars, could be purchased by the County and developed into retail space. The owner of the property, John Gay, is also the owner of the Grand Island Golf Course and Club on Ledo Road. County Commission Chairman Billy Mathis says Gay is reportedly considering giving the club to the county. Mathis says this gift is separate, and the county would never pay for a golf course. Mathis does not know when the deal will be finalized.
