Never played it in the 20 years I've played golf so I don't care if it closes.
There will not be much of a draw for anyone to come to Youngstown if the city closes the golf course . Why not promote it like other areas do with their golf courses ?
There are other courses in the area that are better cared for and more challenging so, no, I for one, would not miss it.
Why not just stop paying the pro on the course such a ridiculous amount of money and use the savings to promote the course or to hire young people out of work to help remove dead trees in the neighborhoods. There sure are enough of them. Priorities, Youngstown! Priorities! Golf course pro making 75K, or hire twenty young people for the summer months to aid in rebeautifying the neighborhoods?
Here's what I say to you:assiseeit: I haven't been to Wal-Mart in twenty years, so lets close that down too.
Stan: Great idea....people don't want to pay 75K to run it, let alone 150K to promote it....and look around, is Stambaugh Golf Course the city's main attraction? Don't get out much...do ya?
mrblue: Some people LIKE to play Stambaugh.....just because it doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean we should close it.....Look around, there are other people on the planet. (I have no tolerance for selfishness!!)
Tigerlily: Why don't you organize a neighborhood group that volunteers twice a month to do exactly as you stated. Oh wait....why don't you sit on the porch, eat potato chips, drink beer and let someone else do all the WORK!! ( I have no tolerance for laziness!!)
