[ARCHIVED] Orangebrook Golf Course Redevelopment Project

Orangebrook

In March 2023, the City Commission authorized staff to negotiate with GCF Development & PPG Development for the redevelopment of the Orangebrook Golf and Country Club, as part of a Public-Private Partnership (P3). A Special City Commission Meeting will take place on Thursday, July 13th at 1:00 p.m. at Hollywood City Hall, 2600 Hollywood Boulevard for the Commission to consider the Comprehensive Agreement and Ground Lease. 

Background:

As part of the 2019 voter-approved General Obligation Bond, one of the improvement projects in the Parks, Open Space, Recreational and Cultural Facilities category was the revitalization of the Orangebrook Golf and Country Club. The project description included: 

  • 36 holes of golf to be renovated including an 18 hole championship course and an 18 hole Par 3 course, enhanced putting/chipping area, 9 illuminated holes for evening play, and driving range  
  • A new 15,000 sq. ft. multi-use clubhouse
  • ADA accessible nature preserve path within course designed with wildlife habitat/biodiversity for walking, jogging, biking,
  • Improved course drainage and water retention capacity
  • New cart barn, maintenance building, course restrooms, starter shack and cart paths 
  • Parking lot and entryway signage.

These improvements were estimated to cost taxpayers $24.7 million. Subsequently, the city received an unsolicited proposal for the redevelopment of the 36-hole course. Following the state's public-private partnerships (P3) statute, proposals were were reviewed by a selection committee, with GCF Development & PPG Development ranking highest, followed by E2L then Ernie ELS Group.
