A handful of South Jordan residents turned out Saturday wearing green T-shirts and carrying "SaveMulligans.com" signs to protest city plans for development they think could gobble up Mulligans Golf Course and encroach on the Jordan River corridor.

Mulligans, located near 700 W. 10600 South, is used by more than 150,000 patrons annually, according to the group, and many thousands more walk, bike and jog along the Jordan River trail.

"A wildlife migratory crossroads, this area of South Jordan is the habitat of numerous wildlife species, including golden eagles, bald eagles, blue herons, ducks, geese and deer," Janalee Tobias, a Jordan River activist, said in a news release. "If this area is destroyed, it cannot be replicated anywhere in the state of Utah."

South Jordan City is considering a proposal to rezone property adjacent to the golf course to clear the way for several proposed apartment buildings. The city also is planning to soon release a study on a possible transit-oriented development in the area.

The "Save Mulligans" group is urging concerned citizens to speak up at city council meetings Tuesday and April 15 at 6 p.m. at South Jordan City Hall, 1600 West Towne Center Drive (10610 South).
