GEDDES — The former Popes’ Grove Golf Course was recently sold for $900,000. 

Stephen Saleski of Sutton Real Estate Company, LLC represented the seller of the property at 695 State Fair Blvd., according to a Sutton news release. The buyer was Mike Flynn, who was represented by Tommy Kehoskie of Independent Realty.

Opened in 1961, Popes’ Grove Golf Course was a 9-hole, par 3 golf course that was in operation for 60 years. Frank and Harriet Pope owned it for most of that time. It’s located close to the New York State Fairgrounds.

Flynn, owner and president of The Roofing Guys, a roofing contracting business in Geddes, has recently announced plans to turn the 38-acre site into a restaurant with an attached brewery or a taphouse. He wants to offer a “destination” for highlighting local breweries, food, and entertainment.
