A developer is seeking to redevelop the 19-hole Oaks Golf Course in Newton County with 142 single-family houses, 190 townhomes and 360 apartments.

The project will also include 143,000 square feet of retail space, including a grocery-chain anchor, according to documents filed with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs by Covington-based Infinity Homes and Development LLC.

A nine-hole executive golf course will remain on the property after the other elements are developed.

Infinity CEO Bill Mitchell told Atlanta Agent the development “is designed to be a true live work play community.”

In addition to the 9-hole golf course, Infinity plans to include a 9-acre multilevel interactive golf complex with food, drinks and virtual gaming.

Mitchell noted that the property sits alongside the Yellow River, which offers kayaking and canoe access through the city of Porterdale. The Newton trail system and the Yellow River Trail also border the community, which covers about 270 acres and is located in the northeast quadrant of the intersection of Crowell Road and Brown Bridge Road.

Work on the project is expected to be completed in 2025.

    Is this a done deal? I thought the first story I read about this disaster of a plan said the developer was seeking re-zoning of the property. Destroying a historic golf course such as The Oaks would be a travesty to the golfing community. Many golfers from out of state play this course the week of the Masters. Not to mention the fact the local community as well as all of the course members would be forced to play other local courses that simply do not have the charm or the courteous and knowledgeable staff The Oaks is known for. This project would add nothing but traffic in an already congested area. There are many other parcels of land in Newton County that would be suitable for such a development.

    I remember when we were told that the property known as The Silos was being developed that it would be like a small Peachtree City. Look at it now. Developers destroyed west Newton County. That’s why we had to leave.
