The developers project that it will take eight to 10 years to complete the community build-out. The golf course, with an anticipated construction cost of $8 to $10 million, is already under construction, with nine holes planned to open in 2010 and the full 18 by 2011. Lots, selling at $75,000 to $85,000, come with two golf course memberships.
