MPC member, developer propose $240 million project at former country club


It’s a quadruple bogey for the condition of the old Shreveport Country Club, where once-pristine greens and fairways are an overgrown mess nearly two years after the course closed.

Now Shreveport Metropolitan Planning Commission member Curtis Joseph -- who has also pitched an ambitious residential-business-retail project along Cross Bayou in downtown Shreveport -- is teeing up a $240 million proposal to bring the country club property back to life as Renaissance Hills.

Joseph turned to law school classmate John A. Henry Jr. of Philadelphia to develop the property. Henry operates Chariot Companies, which has the purchase of the golf course and a separate 33-acre site under contract.
