City of Euclid and Cuyahoga Land Bank Partner to Expand Golf Course

Briardale Green Golf Course is now able to expand with assistance from the City of Euclid and the Cuyahoga Land Bank. Briardale is an eighteen-hole Land Bank Staff course that is located between Babbitt Rd and East 250th.  The course had previously bordered two properties that had been deteriorating for several years.
Both the City of Euclid Land Bank and the Cuyahoga Land Bank were able to collaborate on the removal of these vacant properties.
The City of Euclid demolished the first abandoned house and transferred the property into the City of Euclid’s Land Bank in 2009.  In 2014, the golf course discovered a second home that was abandoned. City officials reached out to the Cuyahoga Land Bank for assistance in demolishing the home. The golf course was able to expand, once the property was acquired and demolished. Now the General Manager of Briardale, Matthew Baca, is able to create a more scenic course.
The Cuyahoga Land Bank utilized funds from the Ohio Housing Finance Agency’s Neighborhood Improvement Program to demolish the property. The land was then transferred to the City of Euclid.
“The Cuyahoga Land Bank is pleased to have removed a blighted influence and at the same time assist the City of Euclid with their golf course expansion,” said Bill Whitney, Chief Operating Office of the Cuyahoga Land Bank.  Both golfers and the course managers are happy to now expand the grounds. The eighteen hole, par seventy course offers amenities and golfing for all skill levels.  To visit the golf course or for further information visit: www.briardalegreens.com.
