Missoula County’s Board of Commissioners heard a proposal Monday to tear up the Larchmont Golf Course and build up to 2,000 housing units, as well as stores and restaurants.
As part of the proposal, a new golf course would be built to the south of the current course off Highway 93 as part of a land swap. The developer, Blueline Development, owns 157 acres of land south of Missoula near the Bitterroot River, where the proposed new golf course would go.
If built, the 152 acres of the Larchmont course could hold up to 2,000 mixed-use residential units, as well as commercial structures, county officials said.

WGM Group presented the proposal to the commissioners. In a letter to the county, the company said tax revenue is estimated at nearly $1.3 million per year to the county and nearly $2 million to the city.
