A long-awaited housing development surrounding a golf course designed by a former PGA-level golfer is finally coming to fruition.
No, it’s not Running Horse, the defunct southwest Fresno project once courted by famed developer Donald Trump. This project is south of the Valley at the Ridge Creek Golf Course in Dinuba.
The Dinuba City Council approved the site map this week and took a look at the first renderings and floor plans for the custom and semi-custom development on the city’s western edge.
“The recession delayed the project but we feel the time is right now,” said Mark Davis, managing partner of Ridge Creek Partners. “Dinuba is growing and there are no homes like this in the greater Dinuba area. The golf club has a great reputation and we will build on that.”
Ridge Creek Partners is the developer. The builder is Ted Intravia of TTI Development in Los Banos.
The development will have two communities. The Golf Estates at Ridge Creek will be a gated community with 55 custom homes on lots ranging from 10,000 to 26,000 square feet.
The Golf Villas at Ridge Creek will have 115 semi-custom homes from 1,780 to 3,400 square feet. Buyers can choose from eight floor plans designed by Visalia architect Stan Canby of Teter AE. Prices will range from the $200,000s to $400,000s.
The project is expected to be developed in four phases. A boutique hotel and recreation center are also proposed for the community.
