The Columbia (Mo.) Parks and Recreation Department will meet to discuss plans to add a new shelter to the golf course’s grounds in May 2014. The project, which is budgeted at $120,000 funded entirely from the golf course’s profits, will situate the structure on the west side of the existing clubhouse, and will accommodate up to 120 people attending tournaments.
Lake of the Woods Golf Course in Columbia, Mo., plans to add a new shelter to its grounds in May, the Columbia-based Missourian reported.
The Columbia Parks and Recreation Department will meet October 29 to discuss the improvements, the Missourian reported.
The new shelter will be used as a large event area for players to hang out during tournaments. It will accommodate approximately 100 to 120 people, said Matt Boehner, the project manager and senior park planner. The structure will be on the west side of the existing clubhouse, the Missourian reported.
The budget for the project is $120,000 and is entirely funded by golf course improvement fees, which are generated from the golf course’s profits, Boehner said. After the shelter is built, the remaining money will be used to improve lighting in the parking lot, the Missourian reported.
The shelter project is set to be finished in May, before Memorial Day, Boehner said.
The public can provide suggestions for the proposal at Tuesday’s meeting, which will be held at the Lake of the Woods clubhouse, the Missourian reported.
“This is an opportunity for people to make public comments,” Boehner said. “We want to garner feedback from the community about what’s going on with our projects.”
