The City of Dayton, Ohio is auctioning golf carts, mowers, tractors, commercial kitchen equipment and other golf course components and landscaping equipment after it permanently closed two of its three golf courses, the Dayton Daily News reported.
In May, the city announced the permanent closure of its Kitty Hawk and Madden golf courses after a review of its municipal golf operation (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/future-of-city-owned-golf-in-dayton-ohio-under-review/). Only Community Golf Club is now open for public golf in the city of 140,000.
Items up for sale through the auction, the Daily News reported, include 100 Yamaha golf carts of varying ages, conditions and colors; Toro and John Deere mowers; granite tee markers; golf bag stands; flags; golf cups, a 12-foot-tall gazebo; assorted landscaping tools and equipment, including tractors and utility vehicles; bar equipment; picnic tables, and park benches.
The auction is being conducted online at www.govdeals.com/cityofdaytonohio. Bidders can complete a free registration at www.govdeals.com/register. Bidding is open to anyone with an interest, including businesses, vendors, contractors, restauranteurs, homeowners and collectors, the Daily News reported.
Online bidding for some items closes on specified dates and times starting June 26th. Several auction clusters will go live, continuing well into July.
“Lots of items are up for auction, from course supplies to memorabilia. Be sure to check back often so you don’t miss a great find,” said Kelly Pressel, the City of Dayton’s Golf Division manager.
