A new owner has emerged in the former troubled golf course/ country club. BB&T recently purchased Wake Forest Golf and Country Club, but for how long you wonder? BB&T has every intention of selling this 147 acre plot that they purchased for 1.3 million in December.BB&T has already begun searching for a marketing agent. So all my Wake Forest Residents, Will you receive a new golf course in your back yard? Or will you begin to see more neighbors? I imagine either answer is better than a landscaping eye sore. We will keep an eye on this one, as you remember several companies have already attempted to place a subdivision there only to either back out, or a lawsuit forced them out.
