A developer is in preliminary talks to turn the former Quarry Hills Golf Course into a residential development for active older adults.

Eric Dischinger met with Swepsonville Mayor Raymond Herring on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to show him the plans, and is asking the Town Council for input.

Dischinger envisions a community that would attract active older adults who want to live in single-family homes and take advantage of the green space that the development would offer.

Right now, a draft of the plan shows 285 lots.

Dischinger wants to reserve at least 70 acres for open green space. The property is about 155 acres.

The property last sold at auction for $781,000 in August 2016.

Dischenger is also developing Cambridge Park in Mebane. It will sit on 238 acres that will have 600 single-family homes and 131 townhouses. The development is under construction at Jones and Burgess drives. It will be a master planned community that will include an Olympic-size swimming pool, a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse, a splash area, a 20-acre dog park, and a public greenway that will be one mile long. Prices will range from $200,000 to $450,000.
