After the local city government decided not to purchase Aurora (Ohio) Golf and Country Club earlier this last month, the golf course will still reopen as a public course, according to its owners.
“Our intent was to open with the city [owning the property], but we will move forward,” said managing partner Hunter Banbury of Aurora Recreation LLC, the property’s owner, in an article in the Aurora Advocate.
Aurora City Council voted against purchasing the country club after deciding it could not afford to spend $3.1 million on it without going into debt. While Banbury said Aurora Recreation is “disappointed” the purchase did not go through, he said the course has been preserved over the winter and is ready to open for the new season.
According to the press release, the country club will offer free golf for the opening weekend, with guests paying only cart fees. Season passes will be offered, as will a junior golf program and various tournament formats.
