Ground Breaking for New Golf Course
Tuesday, 28 April 2015 07:12
The public is invited to join members of the Valentine golf course development board and representatives of the city at the ceremonial ground breaking of the new community golf course. The event will take place at 5:30 this Wednesday evening at the main entrance to the property just Northeast of Cherry Hills Estates.
Construction will be underway on the new 10 hole golf course that is slated to open for play in July of 2016. The budget for the course is right at 2 million dollars and will be paid for by a bond, backed by sales tax revenue, and private contributions. Tax deductible contributions to the new course can also be dropped off at City Hall or with the Sandhill’s area foundation.
The contest for a name for the new golf course and a logo is still open and will remain open until an official name is picked by the board. Submissions can be dropped off to Mike Burge at KVSH Radio or at City Hall. The ground break ceremony will take place at 5:30 this Wednesday.

For families dreaming of owning their own home, but uncertain about how to make that dream a reality, the Central Nebraska Housing Developers (CNHD) will conduct a REACH-Approved Homebuyer Educational workshop in Valentine in May. This workshop will be held at Mid-Plains Community College at 113 North Hall on May 14 and 21, from 6-10 p.m. both evenings. Participants are required to attend both evenings to receive a certificate of completion.
CNHD has a down payment assistance program, and participation in a REACH-certified workshop is a requirement for applying for these funds or other down payment assistance, as well as to qualify for low-interest mortgage loans. To participate in these special programs, all persons to be listed on the property deed must complete Homebuyer Education.
The cost of the workshop is $50 per person, which covers books and materials. Pre-registration is required.
