To preserve more than 100 acres of open space and connect the heart of Mission Viejo, the City Council this week approved the acquisition of the Casta Del Sol Golf Course. On Tuesday, Mayor Greg Raths signed the paperwork to open escrow on the property, which is expected to close on November 8.
The Council’s move will provide the community with convenient access and a one-of-a-kind walking and biking amenity (see a map of the connectivity here).
The golf course property and open space behind it (totaling 108 acres) will provide a critical link to the Oso Creek Trail and well beyond. Residents will be able to reap the benefits of the connection from as far south as Marguerite Parkway/Estanciero to the Civic Core (Mission Viejo Library, City Hall); Norman P. Murray Community Center, Potocki Center for the Arts, soccer fields, Marguerite Aquatics Center, YMCA, Tennis Pavilion, Casta Del Sol golf course and eventually Lake Mission Viejo. With such an extensive internal trail, people will enjoy walking or bicycling to their preferred destination without ever having to hop behind the wheel of a car.
The purchase agreement includes an initial 3-year management agreement with American Golf Corporation to continue operating the Golf Course.
Designed in 1970, the Casta Del Sol course has long been a significant community-oriented property with an emphasis on benefiting residents and guests as well as the entire Mission Viejo community.
