Ownership of Fallbrook Golf Course. Includes parcel number, owner, description, size, sale amount, sale date, etc.
Grant Deed conveying title to Fallbrook Golf Course, Inc. The golf course property consists of 116 acres on 2 separate legal parcels described by metes and bounds description which are referenced as Parcels 1 and 2 as set forth on Exhibit A attached to the Grant Deed conveying title to Fallbrook Golf Course, Inc., a California corporation. The 2 legal parcels are made up of 9 Assessor Parcel Numbers, NOT 9 legal parcels. The subdivision laws under the California Subdivision Map Act Government Code sections 66410 et seq. (the “SMA”) establish regulations and controls for the subdivision of land. As a general rule, the SMA prohibits selling real property that has not been properly subdivided and therefore a sale of a “portion” of either of the 2 legal parcels would be in violation of the SMA. Experts in the field have cautioned that a subdivision of either of the 2 legal parcels for housing developments or mitigation banking purposes would be VERY difficult, if not impossible, and that such a process, if attempted, could take a decade or longer and there would be no assurance of success.

The meeting minutes note that FCPG board member “Ann Burdick asked Verizon’s Darrell Daugherty if he was aware that a cell tower had been proposed to be located at the Fallbrook golf course site, 2757 Gird Road, several times in the past and each time the FCPG denied that request. Mr. Daugherty replied he was not aware of this fact.”
