Discovery Land Company, the developers seeking to build homes and an 18-hole golf course on 436 acres in East Quogue, is in the process of buying another 156 acres of land. The plan is to preserve that land but transfer its development rights to the main parcel of land, which would then theoretically allow them to build 118 homes, up from the 82 originally approved in the pre-application. The residences would be restricted by covenant to be second homes.
Discovery Land Company builds private resort communities across the United States, mostly in the west. The golf course would be designed by noted architect Tom Fazio, and there will also be a clubhouse with fitness center, kids' club, and restaurant. At least 326 acres would be contiguous natural open space, as the 118 houses would be clustered.
The project is not without its detractors—neighbors are concerned about traffic, the proposed 33,000 square-foot clubhouse and restaurant, and the impact on the Pine Barrens.
