Ballots have been mailed to the 481 members of the Tallahassee, Fla., club to approve owner Barton Tuck’s controversial plan to close nine holes on its north course so the land can be redeveloped, with revenue used to improve the remaining 18 holes and facilities. Members are being asked to waive their right to buy the entire club if any part of it is closed.
Four others were injured at the Bradenton, Fla. retirement community after an SUV jumped the curb and ran into a group gathered outside the clubhouse after a Sunday-morning worship service. The 79-year-old driver, who apparently lost control after accelerating while backing up, was unhurt, as was her 87-year-old passenger, even though their car ended up partially submerged in a creek embankment. The mobile-home community is located near River Run Golf Links, a municipal course.
