After the existing course operator ended its arrangement with the city of Andover, Kan., the management firm Oaks Golf entered into a three-year agreement to assume control. The golf course is expected to open March 1.
Andover, Kan. city leaders voted January 11 to save the Andover Municipal Golf Course after a majority of the community asked the city to keep it, KWCH reported. The vote comes after the current course operator told the city he is no longer interested in running the 9-hole, par-33 course.
The city spent the last two months exploring other possibilities for the course, but ultimately entered a three-year agreement with management firm Oak Golf, KWCH reported. The company operates several golf courses around Kansas, Including Maryville (Mo.) Country Club, Emporia (Kan.) Country Club, Park Hills Country Club in Pratt, Kan., and Dodge City (Kan.) Country Club, according to its website.
Brenda Church, who lives on the golf course, told KWCH golfers are looking to get back on the course again next month.
“Our phone has been ringing off the wall today from former members because they have been playing other places,” she said. “They saw this was on the agenda for the city council meeting tonight. They were all calling [my husband] to see what he knew and when they could get back on the course.”
Oak Golf told KWCH membership rates will be comparable to the current price. The golf course is expected to open March 1.
