The Bayard, Neb. club was owned by the city, but acquired by Brian and Mandi Sauer for $250,000 after it was put up for sale because of a projected budget shortfall. The new owners replaced a couple of mowers, added six more golf carts and installed a sand volleyball pit.
The new owners of Chimney Rock Golf Course in Bayard, Neb. have been getting things in shape over the past few weeks since taking over the operation, KNEB reported. Brian and Mandi Sauer purchased the golf course from the City of Bayard for $250,000 after the city put the property up for sale when facing a $200,000 budget shortfall.
Brian Sauer told KNEB News it’s been a good course since it first opened in 1991, and they are not planning to make any big changes to the course layout or the holes. However, he said the one new addition was a sand volleyball pit they just put in.
Aside from a few dry spots and some sprinkler heads that needed to be dug up, the course was is really in good shape, Sauer told KNEB.
The new owners replaced a couple of mowers and added six more golf carts, but told KNEB everything is up and running, including the restaurant.
The course requires golfers to call for a tee time on weekends, and Sauer said the property is booked on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for league play.
