Developer buys Clearview Country Club for $2.85M

Eastland Partners has proposed building 60 single-family homes on the former 9-hole course

A homebuilder in Massachusetts has bought the 143-acre Clearview Country Club in Millbury. Eastland Partners is planning to build 60 single-family homes on the property. 

If the site is redeveloped as planned, it would be the latest golf course to undergo such a transformation in Central Massachusetts. 

In Framingham, the former Millwood Farms Golf Course is being turned into a 129-unit housing development for those 55 years of age and older. In Millis, the former Glen Ellen Country Club is now the site of 329 homes in the Regency at Glen Ellen development, the Worcester Business Journal reported. 

Eastland Partners purchased the land for $2.83 million in September. The course has been on rocky ground for some time. The country club attempted to sale the land a couple of years ago too, but deal didn’t go through. 

According to the Worcester Business Journal, the town of Milbury had a right of first refusal to buy the site two years ago because of its preservation-focused tax structure. However, voters narrowly rejected a plan to buy it.
