St. Johns County Golf Course Master Plan Update – The St. Johns Golf Club, 4900 Cypress Links Blvd., is currently in the process of a potential Master Plan update that would include repairing, replacing, and updating various aspects of the golf course. St. Johns County released a Request for Proposals (RFP) in November 2018 to determine market interest in a potential public-private partnership to utilize excess land within the golf course in exchange for the renovations. An RFP evaluation committee ranked the two qualified proposals during a public meeting on December 20, 2018 and a Letter of Intent was issued to the most qualified applicant, Neighborhood Realty, Inc./McGarvey Residential Communities.
The Board of County Commissioners is scheduled to consider an item on the January 15, 2019 agenda that would include a recommendation authorizing staff to negotiate a contract with the most qualified applicant. The negotiated contract would then be presented to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration and action at a future public hearing.
