The Deer Creek Golf Club in Overland Park will close April 1, according to its owners. 

Brett Klaussman, golf course owner and president of GreatLIFE KC, made the announcement Wednesday, a day after the Overland Park City Council rejected a plan for a $65 million apartment complex next to the course. 

That development plan, Klaussman said, would have helped Deer Creek, in part, to “stabilize and mitigate erosion issues.”
