FAYETTEVILLE -- A bank has asked a judge to foreclose on the multimillion-dollar Valley View golf course that has been embroiled in lawsuits and environmental complaints for years.

Valley View history

Valley View Estates subdivision has a community sewer system meant to treat about 490 homes’ wastewater. Washington County approved the Washington County Property Owners Improvement District No. 5, which became a public utility that oversaw the community sewer system for the Valley View subdivision in 1998. Valley View Golf took over the system in 2005, and Communities Unlimited was court-ordered to take over the defunct system in 2016.
