A local school district has agreed to pay the private Country Club of Spartanburg (S.C.) $200,000 up front and then $5,000 per year for 25 years so its high school golf team can practice on the club’s course.
Thomas White, Superintendent of Spartanburg School District 7, told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal that the money will be taken from the district’s general fund budget, and the contract will go into effect for the spring season.
The newly signed contract will allow Spartanburg High School’s junior varsity and varsity girls’ and boys’ teams (a total of about 50 students) to use the course. The contract will also allow the district to put signs at the course, and give District 7 priority over other K-12 teams at the Country Club of Spartanburg.
“We are proud of our golf course and facilities,” said Lewis Miller, President of the Country Club of Spartanburg. “We are proud to have a partnership with Wofford College and now Spartanburg School District 7. It is our pleasure to welcome and assist the student-athletes of District 7’s golf teams.”
