County commissioners voted 6-1 on Monday to approve purchase the 167-acre property for $700,000. The public golf course, at the intersection of Massenburg-Baker and Wheless roads in Louisburg, includes a 3,200-square-foot clubhouse, two 4,000-square-foot buildings and four ponds.
The county plans to develop the property in accordance with the wishes of the late Edgar H. Owens, who willed that a portion of his estate be used for a park in honor of his parents. The property will be renamed the V.E. and Lydia H. Owens Recreational Park, officials said.
