The 96-year-old club will close its 90-acre course on May 7 and remain open to host events, parties and meetings. Memberships with golf privileges will be converted to social-only. “Basically, we couldn’t justify the cost with the use of the course,” a club manager said.

A city manager thinks the course offers opportunity for sale and mixed-use development.
