The Sunland community that we know today was merely a farmer’s dream prior to the 1950s. The land was owned by the Taylor family and cultivated as farmland for nearly 60 years prior to its development as a golf course community. Development of the Sunland community and golf course began in the spring of 1962. The first Sunland residents moved into their homes in the fall of 1963. Construction of the front nine initiated in the fall of 1969 and was open for play by the summer of 1971.
