*On March 14, 2012 the Trust for Public Lands (TPL) announced it was in negotiations to acquire the Ocean Meadows Golf Course. Once escrow in completed, expected to be after October, 2012, the land will be transferred to UCSB's Cheadle Center for Biological Diversity and Ecological Restoration. As stated on the TPL website:
'The Trust for Public Land is working alongside the California State Coastal Conservancy and the University of California at Santa Barbara to purchase the Devereux Slough and restore it to its natural splendor.
Located at the eastern gateway to the Gaviota Coast, Ocean Meadows is the final acquisition in an open-space strategy known as the Joint Proposal that will link more than 600 acres of land together for people and wildlife to use and enjoy. When it is restored, the site will be used for environmental education, research and gentle recreation.'
Restoration began in 2017.
However, both the Glen Annie and the ocean front Sandpiper Golf Courses are within 3 miles of the condo.
