The city of Fosston, Minnesota has purchased a 180-acre parcel that includes a nine-hole golf course.
For the time being, Fosston Golf Club will remain open, operated by a recently created association of golfers from the area. If the 50-year-old course becomes a financial drain, however, it appears that the city won’t hesitate to close it.
“We all believe that it’s important to have a golf course as an amenity for our residents,” Mayor Jim Offerdahl told the Grand Forks Herald. “But if it doesn't operate successfully, the land is valuable for other development.”
The city paid $350,000 for the property. The seller was Greg Mireault, a PGA pro who also owns a local furniture store.
