Ana Batista bought her Calusa Club Estates home in Miami’s West Kendall neighborhood 33 years ago because she liked the golf course setting, but now the 168-acre shuttered course is set to sprout houses.

The golf course at 9400 SW 130th Ave. was to remain untouched until 2067 under a covenant. Many residents say they bought their houses based on that appealing promise as urban sprawl spread west for miles beyond Calusa Club.
