A former golf course in the Lehigh Valley could be getting a new look.

A developer wants to build a five-story hotel and banquet facility at the Center Valley Golf Club, said officials with Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh Co.

The golf course closed in 2011.

The hotel would be built on the old driving range, directly across from the Promenade Shops, officials said.

The group that owns the land has been marketing the property for development, but it's not clear who is behind the proposal, the township said.
