The Calverton Links golf course, which has been closed since last October, has a new owner.

A group called Bashi Calverton Links LLC, headed by developer Parviz Farahzad, purchased the 126-acre property on Edwards Avenue on May 30 for $3.5 million, according to county records. 

It’s unclear if the new owners plan to continue the golf course use or to propose another use for the property. Mr. Farahzad, who is president of Little Rock Construction in Setauket, did not immediately return a call for comment.

Calverton Links was built by Bill Schulman of Fort Salanga in the early 1990s. The course, and the Eagles Landing restaurant on the site, closed on Oct. 30, 2013 and never reopened. It is one of several golf courses on Long Island that have closed recently.

The Calverton Links land is zone Industrial C, which includes an array of permitted uses, from offices to parks to wholesale businesses, according to Town Code.

Special permit uses, which require Town Board approval, include outdoor theaters — including a bandshell, bandstand, or amphitheater — a sports arena, a motor coach terminal, agricultural production on at least seven acres, or a one-family dwelling on a lot of at least four acres.

One potential use that is currently permitted outright on Industrial C properties, but which might require a special permit on Industrial C zones in the future, is a solar energy farm.
