For the past 50 years, the city of Santa Clara has been planning what officials call a mega entertainment hub. The proposed project will be built on 230 acres of city-owned property, near Levi's Stadium.
The Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club will close and that land will be the new location of the entertainment hub. The club has six months before it closes for good.
The 230-acre site will be converted into a mega entertainment hub. Named "City Place." It'll be one of the largest retail and entertainment developments in the United States.
Many residents don't like the idea of taking one of the city's only open spaces and converting it to indoor shops and restaurants.
Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club opened back in 1987. It's across the street from Levi's Stadium and near California's Great America Theme Park. It includes a driving range, putting and chipping practice areas, lighted tennis courts and onsite instruction from PGA and LPGA professionals.
The mayor says they are working to try and get its residents discounted prices at other golf course in neighboring cities.
The first of City Place is expected to open in three years. The entire project should be completed within 10 to 15 years. The golf club will stay open until Oct. 15.
