Triad developer converting golf course into large housing community

The community will surround the former Quarry Hills Golf Course.

SWEPSONVILLE, N.C. — A young developer has purchased the land for another large Triad subdivision where homes will be built by the nation's largest homebuilder.

Eric Dischinger's Desco Investment Co. of Chapel Hill will develop 285 lots on the former Quarry Hills Golf Course in Swepsonville for a community targeting retirees. D.R. Horton will build the homes.

A few weeks ago, Desco paid $2.85 million for approximately 170 acres at 2220 George Bason Road. The property is along Quandry Lake and within sight of the Haw River. Dischinger has yet to announce a name for the community.

Dischinger said he plans to leave about 70 acres open, a plan that may mitigate the disappointment felt by existing homeowners who bought along the former golf course.

Dischinger said the golf course's cart paths will connect into sidewalks and extend along the lake with views of the river. The Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School and Elon University graduate said amenities would include a pavilion on the lake with a gazebo and fire pit for community gatherings. He said the former golf clubhouse could not be saved.
