Bardmoor. Baypointe. Tides. Three Seminole-area golf course properties with uncertain fates. In many ways, their stories are similar. In Pinellas County, the most densely populated county in the state of Florida, large swatches of open green space — undeveloped land — are hard to come by. Developers eye these properties as attractive possibilities, whether they’re active golf courses or not, which has inspired thousands living in nearby homes to step up and speak out against these plans.

Save Bardmoor and Save the Tides organizations have joined forces to host a Green Space Rally on Saturday along Park Boulevard in front of Waterfront Park. The rally is a protest against “overdevelopment by out-of-state developers and further loss of what little open space we have left in the county.”

Save the Tides, an organization dedicated to stopping the development of the Tides Golf Club property on Boca Ciega Bay and preserving the land, has organized a town hall meeting for the District 6 County Commission candidates Tuesday, Aug. 14, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Faith Community Church, 11501 Walker Ave.

Activists are back in action regarding the fate of the Tides Golf Club in Seminole. Last week, owners of the club  announced the closure of the club in a notice to members that read, "Due to the lack of support from the golfing community, the owners have made the decision to close operations effective July 1, 2018. A golf course at this location is not a viable business.”
