Sept. 6 (Bloomberg) -- The Doral golf resort’s owner agreed to sell the Miami property for $170 million as part of a restructuring of a group of luxury resorts.
A joint venture that includes hedge fund Paulson & Co. took control of eight resort properties including the Doral through a foreclosure earlier this year. The Doral, which was put into bankruptcy, was then put up for sale.
The $170 million bid is subject to higher offers at an auction, according to a Sept. 2 court filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. Edward Sassower, a lawyer for the resorts, didn’t return a phone call seeking information about the identity of the buyer.
The bid doesn’t include the Doral’s White course, one of five championship-level golf courses at the site, according to court papers.
The case is In re MSR Resort Golf Course LLC, 11-10372, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
