Some in Annapolis have expressed concerns over the U.S. Navy’s plans for Greenbury Point and whether that will mean a new golf course or an extension of the existing golf course on currently undeveloped land.
The property, which is owned by the U.S. Navy, is a popular spot for walking, running, hiking and enjoying nature. Part of the property is occasionally used as a firearms range – when it is, it’s off limits to visitors.
“The Navy has received a proposal from the Naval Academy Golf Association to lease land at Greenbury Point with the intent of expanding the U.S. Naval Academy Golf Course on federal land onboard Naval Support Activity (NSA) Annapolis,” stated Ed Zeigler, director of public affairs for Naval District Washington. “The Installation has reviewed the proposed concept and forwarded it for further review. As always, the Navy is committed to being a responsible community partner. If the proposed concept moves through the review process, transparency, community involvement and input will be critical to meeting the needs of the Navy and the Annapolis community.”
