A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge Tuesday authorized a bankruptcy plan that moves private homebuilder Heartland Homes a step closer to building up to 300 homes on a shuttered 120-acre county club and golf course in Ross.

Heartland Homes agreed to pay off a more than $2 million delinquent mortgage on Highland Country Club held by Slovak Savings Bank of Brighton Heights and more than $90,000 in back taxes owed to Ross, North Hills School District and Allegheny County. Payments would be made as lots for the houses are sold over the next five years. Heartland Homes is pursuing approvals for its development from Ross officials.

Highland Country Club opened in 1920. It closed October 2011 after months of failing to pay its bills. Two months later, a co-owner pleaded guilty to stealing money from the club. Heartland and another developer teamed to buy the club's bankrupt ownership group in April.

Judge Jeffrey A. Deller approved the plan at a Downtown hearing.
