Developers seek golf course swap in Amherst

Though little certainty exists, planners are promoting their idea of a large scale lawn swap in Amherst.

Developers offered details at a Tuesday night public meeting regarding their plan to trade the privately-owned Westwood Country Club for the town-owned Audubon Golf Course on Maple Road.

While the town could continue offering municipal golf at the Westwood location, the 170-acre Audubon land would be transformed into a multi-use development.

According to the Buffalo News, planners admit the land swap faces several hurdles before becoming a reality.
