New owners of the West Orange Country Club have a message for nearby residents: Become a member, or the golf course and its long-standing club will become just another housing development.Longtime country-club member Jim Karr, a land broker, led three other investors last month in buying the financially struggling club for about $1.3 million. Buyers paid off the club’s debts and are repainting, re-roofing and tearing out about 30 dead pine trees from the 155 acres.
