It looks like a massive residential development is being planned at Razorback Park Golf Course in west Fayetteville.
Preliminary plans emerged last week for a project that includes 668 apartments and 233 single-family homes on the 125-acre property along Deane Solomon Road.

A company registered to Jim Lindsey of Lindsey Management Co. is under contract to buy the golf course, according to a report from Joel Walsh of the NWA Democrat-Gazette.
Members of the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board are set to review the plans Monday as part of the city’s park land dedication process for residential projects. According to the meeting agenda (PDF), Lindsey’s company is proposing dedicating 8 acres of park land north of Clabber Creek and a $588,000 payment to the city in lieu of the 14.71-acre dedication requirement for a project of this size.
Drawings from Blew & Associates engineers show a mix of apartments and houses planned across the property, including 27 single-family lots and seven apartment buildings surrounding the pond at the island green on Hole 10.
Preliminary plans show another 30 apartment buildings at the south end of the property near West Lori Drive. Drawings also show a clubhouse, a pool and cabana, along with basketball, tennis and volleyball courts across the course’s driving range north of Hole 18.
At least three entrances are planned on Deane Solomon Road, along with proposed connections to Raven Lane at the north and south ends of the development, and to Emil Drive at the southeast corner of the property.
Regardless of the board’s decision on Monday, the project would still need to clear the rezoning process before plans could move forward.
The property is currently zoned with a mix of R-A (Residential-Agricultural), RSF-1 (Residential Single-Family – 1 unit per acre), and RSF-4 (Residential Single-Family – 4 units per acre). Preliminary drawings propose a mix of RSF-7 (Residential Single-Family – 7 units per acre) and RMF-24 (Residential Multi-Family – 24 Units per Acre).
