Cedar Creek Golf Club potential site for homes

May 4, 2018

A second single-family home development is being proposed for Cedar Creek Township, according to documents filed with the Allen County Plan Commission.

Called Tullymore Run, the 126-lot development is on 15.8 acres at 10000 Garman Road. The address is the same as that used by Cedar Creek Golf Club, but the relationship of the course to the development could not be determined Thursday.

The location is identified in application documents as east of Amstutz Road, west of Lochner Road and bordered on the north by Garman.

The development is being proposed by Tullymore Run LLC of Fort Wayne, and longtime Fort Wayne-area homebuilder Roger Delagrange is listed as a contact on application documents.

He could not be reached for comment Thursday afternoon.

A woman who answered the club’s phone Thursday afternoon confirmed “a developer” was interested in the property and the figure of 126 homes. She said the property had not been sold and the course was not closing.

In the past, Delagrange has built homes near golf courses.

A national trend has seen closing of courses as the popularity of the sport wanes and the ground becomes valuable as home sites.

The Tullymore homes will have individual wells and Leo-Cedarville Regional Sewer District sewers, according to the application. It seeks rezoning by the Allen County Plan Commission from agricultural to single-family residential. 

The application does not state whether the homes will be traditional residences or free-standing villas.

Last month, Millennium Development Inc. of Fort Wayne proposed a 150-single-family home development called Eagles Nest for Cedar Creek Township. Those homes would go on 95 acres along Union Chapel Road.

Last year, developer Mike Thomas proposed homes on two other area golf courses, Deer Track and Willow Ridge, in Perry Township.  

A public hearing on the Tullymore project is scheduled for 1 p.m. June 14 in Room 35 of Citizens Square.
