City-owned Stambaugh Golf Course gets repairs to clubhouse
By DAVID SKOLNICK
The exterior of the Henry Stambaugh Golf Course’s clubhouse is undergoing its first major repair work since it was built 49 years ago.
The $12,500 project, being done by Boak & Sons of Austintown, includes replacing rusty gutters and downspouts with new ones, repairing window sashes and trim, caulking cracks and painting the clubhouse.
The work should be done shortly, said David Boos, who manages the city-owned golf course.
During rainstorms, water was gathering near the building’s foundation, porch and steps, he said.
The city is paying $9,500 of the clubhouse improvement costs with $3,000 coming from a Youngstown Foundation grant obtained by the Friends of Stambaugh Golf Course, an organization created by a group of golfers to raise money for improvements to the facility.
