Elkhart Mayor: City-owned golf course will close Oct. 19


Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore says the city will be closing Sims Oak Hills Golf Course near Middlebury on October 19 and try to sell the property.

The city says the course was initially set up to sustain itself by player fees and the sale of merchandise. In a release, Moore says the course has only survived on revenue generated by the sale of two properties on the course and an adjustment to the course's liability insurance premium.

The city doesn't use tax dollars to supplement the operating cost of the course.

Along with trying to sell the course, the Mayor's release says the city will also try to divest other properties outside the city limits.
