Gainesville Golfers Mourn Temporary Closure Of Ironwood
Time has run out for golfers hoping to tee up at the Ironwood golf course in Gainesville.
The city owned golf course closed it's doors to start on a 1.2-million dollar renovation project.
This will be the first renovation project to improve the greens, tee boxes and the drainage system in the 17 years the city has owned the facility.
The city allocated a capital bond to ironwood to complete the repairs to be paid back by golfers and not the taxpayer.
Fees should only increase by 5 dollars when the repairs are completed.
The city will loose nearly half a million dollars in revenue because of the course's temporary closure, but they've already budgeted for it.
