The YMCA, which is in talks with an undisclosed national retailer to sell its property, owns the land on which two of the course’s holes are located—property that the city leases. Once the property is sold, Thompson Oaks would be left with only seven holes. The course has needed about $50,000 dollars in a year in city subsidy to remain solvent. With the pending sale of YMCA land, the city chose to be pro-active and close the course and investigate new use for the property.
