The Broken Top Community Association (BTCA) has voted to buy the property and other assets of the Broken Top Club. The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.
According to a release, more tan 84 percent of the 645 Broken Top homeowners voted to support to $6.4 million purchase, which includes the 18-hole golf course, clubhouse with fitness, event and restaurant facilities and the swimming pool and tennis/pickle ball courts. All the facilities are currently held by Gold Ring Holdings, LLC. The proposal needed 75 percent approval to pass.
“We’re very happy that the homeowner community overwhelmingly supported this deal,” said Mike Chrystal, board president of the BTCA. “We think it’s going to be great for the homeowner, current employees, members of the Broken Top Club and people who enjoy fine dining in our beautiful surroundings…Our goal is to build on what works to ensure Broken Top is always a phenomenal place to live, play, and dine. We want to listen hard to all of the people who have a stake in making that happen.”
The BTCA Board is working on implementation details, including setting up structures to work on longer term strategic planning as well as ongoing operations.
The Broken Top Restaurant, which is open to the public, will continue to operate on a Wednesday-Sunday schedule. BTCA is working in close collaboration with the current ownership to ensure continuity of restaurant, golf, event and other operations.
“We’re pretty much heads down right now, but we’re very excited about the vote, and about how the transition is progressing,” Chrystal said. “Over the next few months, we’ll be engaging deeply with homeowners, employees, Broken Top Club members, and the broader Bend community to ensure we’re delivering a high-quality experience across all of the areas we care so deeply about. I look forward to sharing more as things evolve.”
