From the perspective of Homewood officials and residents at a special board of trustees meeting Thursday, July 18, the proposed redevelopment of Calumet Country Club appears to be a doubly bad deal: a big loss and a bad gain.

Last year, Calumet Country Club officials were not certain whether the golf course would be open in 2019, but it is — and it is open to the public for the first time in its history. The 118-year-old club has been part of Homewood for 102 years, fronting 175th Street just west of Dixie Highway, and in that time it has been a members-only organization.
