New golf course open for business
Georgia Southern University senior Zac Watson of Warner Robins acknowledges a big crowd after taking the ceremonial first tee shot after the ribbon was cut on a newly renovated golf course on Golf Club Road on Thursday. The university purchased the golf course three years ago and spent $5 million on the renovation.
Three years of work culminated on Thursday six miles from the campus of Georgia Southern University when the ribbon was cut on the GSU-owned and student-accessible University Park golf course on the grounds of the former Southern Links. "This was just an opportunity, and I think that's the best way to look at it," GSU President Brooks Keel said after the ribbon cutting. "It was an opportunity to be able to pick up this golf course at a time when the price was as good as on could possibly hope for."
