Lowndes County - Bill Langdale looks forward to a day when a portion of Kinderlou Forest will be transformed into a golf community.

"The course would be bigger and more challenging than any other the others we have in town," said Langdale. "It's something we really need in Lowndes County."

The proposed golf community would be located right off Highway 84 in an agricultural area owned by the Langdale Company. But a state-of-the-art golf course designed by PGA golfer Davis Love III wouldn't be the only attraction.

"There would be land for residential use with a variety of lot sizes to choose from," said Langdale.

The Greater Lowndes Planning Commission moved the proposal one step closer to reality Monday night with a 5 to 3 vote of recommendation to county commissioners. County officials say the golf community will have a great economic impact on Lowndes County.

"It will bring in people who'll stay in our hotels, eat at our restaurant, and provide countless economic benefits for the county," said Paige Dukes, Lowndes Public Information Officer.

Lowndes county commissioners take final approval or refusal action on the proposed golf community at their November 12th meeting.
