Detailed description of Defense Depot Golf Course, CLOSED 1997

Defense Depot, is a Military, 9 hole golf course located in Memphis, Tennessee.

On September 30, 1997, after 55 years of service, the 642-acre Memphis Defense Depot closed due to the decisions of the 1995 Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC). In response to the federal government's decision to close the doors, the City of Memphis and the Shelby County Government partnered with the economic development community to begin the process of converting the Memphis Defense Depot to non-military use in an effort to recapture jobs.

A no-cost lease of fifty acres of parkland, including the nine-hole golf course and clubhouse is operated by a local faith-based organization to help establish sports skills in youth and offer occasionally activities for tenants.

Defense Depot Golf Course closed in 1997.
