As BoiseDev first reported last year, Will Gustafson purchased the course from a California firm. At the time he said he hadn’t settled on exactly what would happen with the property. He noted that Ada County Highway District planned to take right-of-way for an upcoming road project. He said that move would make the 10th hole at Plantation along State St. unworkable for golf.

Now, a media representative for Gustafson said he hired Brian Curley of Schmidt-Curley Design to look at options. The firm has worked on more than 150 courses around the world. Curley visited Boise Wednesday to gather information and meet with stakeholders to discuss the future.

“Curley’s redesign will look at options to maintain 18-holes, raise the level of the course as well as the club experience and make room for some development along State Street in the abandoned #10 fairway,” Julie Chigbrow with Red Sky PR told BoiseDev.

Gustafson told BoiseDev he is committed to maintaining golf at the course, while finding ways to revitalize the business.
