Proposed Amherst property swap involves golf courses

Jul 29, 2012

A proposed swapping of properties could bring new development to the Town of Amherst.

The News reports that Mensch Capital Partners is expected to formally request that the town trade the Audubon Golf Course to them in exchange for their Westwood Country Club. Operations at the club have been troubled of late, and the lease with the current operators ends in December. Mensch is interested in using the Audubon property for mixed development.

Any transaction will likely face protracted negotiations.
