SANTA CLARA — A wide-ranging revamp and preservation of a well-known golf course, along with the development of hundreds of homes, could emerge in the South Bay, a new proposal shows.

The project would bring big changes to Pruneridge Golf Club in Santa Clara and add more than 300 homes to a site near the corner of San Tomas Expressway and Pruneridge Avenue.

Site plan for The Greens at Pruneridge, a housing development and golf course revamp at 400 Saratoga Avenue in Santa Clara, concept. The new housing would be located on the south side of the development along Pruneridge Avenue.

An estimated 324 residential units would be built as a featured component of the proposed project at 400 Saratoga Ave., documents on file with city planners show.

“The nine-hole executive golf course remains, with holes one, two and three being reconfigured to create a completely new golfing experience,” the planning documents state.

Demmon Family Partnership, based in Redwood City, owns the 4.9-acre golf course site, documents on file with Santa Clara County officials show. Los Gatos-based The Morley Bros., a real estate firm and development consultant, is helping to steer the project through the city review and approval process.

“The Greens at Pruneridge is an innovative development poised to modernize the Pruneridge Golf Club with a sleek, modern design,” Demmon Family Partnership stated on a project website. “This project will also significantly contribute to the Santa Clara community by providing much-needed new housing options.”

The existing driving range, club house and parking lot would remain in their current configurations, according to the proposal. The current golf maintenance facility would be relocated.

“The longtime owners of the golf course, Demmon Partners, are pursuing a master plan for a complete modernization of the course to improve its playability and sustainability for the long term along with the residential site,” Sean Morley, a principal executive with Morley Bros., said in comments emailed to this news organization.

The housing would be in two buildings, the project proposal shows. Both structures would be apartment buildings.

One apartment building would contain 201 units while the other apartment structure would accommodate 123 units. The building heights would be in the range of four to five stories.

“This project includes a significant portion of affordable housing, essential for maintaining the vitality of our neighborhood,” Demmon Partners said in an online post.

The Greens at Pruneridge proposal is in its very early stages. The precise timeline for a final city decision is unknown.

“Since its acquisition in the 1970s by Demmon Partners, the golf club has been a cherished part of our community,” Demmon Partners stated on the project website. “We are poised to embark on an ambitious multi-million dollar renovation aimed at enhancing its environmental sustainability.”

The revamp of the golf course isn’t slated to launch in the immediate future.

“Golf course improvements won’t start for many years,” Demmon Partners stated in a web post.
