The Proposed Golf Course

“Pacific Gales” is what the applicant, Elk River Property Development, calls it. They leased part of the Knapp Ranch (or Ranches) for a location, which is why some term it the “Knapp Ranch Golf Course.” A number of issues that stand in the way have yet to be resolved, however, so “The Proposed Golf Course” seems to fit best for the time being. All three titles are used herein.
