Tyee Poll: Should Vancouver Turn Its Golf Courses into Homes?

Patrick Condon and Scot Hein have a simple but controversial idea for the City of Vancouver: Get out of the golf game and more into housing.

“City-owned golf courses, off limits to most, sit in the middle of long-established neighbourhoods now being transformed to accommodate new population,” they wrote in The Tyee. The two argue that Vancouver, a city in the throes of a housing and affordability crisis, could gain over three square kilometres and $20 billion worth of prime land — currently used by “a few hundred recreators” — and transform it into affordable housing.

We’re wondering what you think. Should Vancouver turn its golf courses into homes?
