There are new owners who run the ship at Grand Blanc’s popular golf course, The Jewel, and with that, new plans for the course and the well and surrounding property.

The 36-hole course, located on Perry Road, has been a staple in the Grand Bland community for years. It was recently sold to Statewide Management, LLC. according to reports. The course was known for years as the Grand Blanc Gold Course until in 2009 it was seized and revitalized, and renamed when it was bought by two local businessmen who renamed it The Jewel. The gem then went on sale in 2019 for $ 2,999,000 and has finally found someone to invest in its future.

What’s next for Le Joyau du Grand Blanc?

According to Mlive, Statewide Management, LLC., Based in Macomb Country, Michigan, has previously discussed the future of the property. City officials told Mlive the new owners have discussed changes, including developing the north side of the existing property by omitting 9 holes from the playing course. Instead, the company plans to add 124 new single family homes and condominiums.

Currently, the part of the property being modified includes two small houses which have come with the sale of the course and the clubhouse. These houses, which are right on Perry Road, will be sold. According to the report, the new owners plan to keep the restaurant, known as Paddy McGee’s Bar and Restaurant, as part of their overall project.

City officials are working with landlords on zoning ordinances and developing plans, but are excited for the future of the popular course.

“The plans they submitted still include the golf course, so the entire golf course will not be removed along with the residential portion. It is certainly something that we were very happy to have seen when they submitted their plans, it was respected and important ”, commented Wendy Jean-Bauer, director of Grand Blanc City, in Mlive.

The city has pledged to continue to keep residents informed of plans for the future as they develop.
