Save the Golf Course Effort
Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:56
A group of local sportsman are asking for a show of community support for the Deer Park Golf Course that has served the Valentine area for over 40 years but was not opened by the owner this year. It is still unclear what the future holds for the old course or construction of a new course at a different location. The group will be circulating petitions throughout the community to allow people to show support for a golf course in the community. Petitions are available at the studios of KVSH, Isom Insurance office and will be at Youngs Western Wear this Saturday. The show of support will be used in future planning efforts for a golf course to serve the community. Area residents are encouraged to stop and sign a petition or contact Steve Isom, Jerry Reynoldson or Doctor Dick Jeffers.
