Milton releases golf cart easements of former country club

The Milton City Council has approved releasing golf cart easements of the former Milton Country Club that crossed 22 parcels of privately owned land.

The country club, a 137-acre property with private golf course acquired by the city in January 2018, is being converted to public recreational space.

The city does not use the land as a golf course and no longer has use for the easements, a resolution approved by the council says. “The highest and best use is for the city to release such easements to the benefit of the private property parcel owners upon whose property such easements run.”

The easements crossed three lots in the Wood Valley subdivision, Unit Two; 10 lots in Wood Valley at the Country Club of North Fulton, Unit One; and nine lots of Wood Valley at the Country Club of North Fulton, Unit Three, according to the resolution.

The city continues to hold an easement on one lot until an alternate access point can be identified, staff said.
