CARLTON – Lynn-Ette and Sons has been busy the past month transforming the former Harbor Pointe Country Club from a golf course into farmland.

I drove by on Route 98 today and was stunned by the transformation. Many trees have been taken down in the past month at the site.

Lynn-Ette bought the golf course earlier this month from the Cardone family, which owned it for 33 years. A drop in golf play and a rise in corn prices in recent years prompted a change in use for the site.

The golf course opened 50 years ago on Route 98 in Carlton. The course opened in 1964 as the Oak Orchard Country Club.
