UWGB’s Shorewood Golf Course closes for good
GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) — At UWGB the Shorewood Golf Course has welcomed in students and the general public for over 90 years. But, due to a lack of ground maintenance workers, the cost of maintaining the course, and dwindling interest in the course; UWGB leaders have decided to close the golf course. UWGB’s Chancellor, Michael Alexander, estimates that it costs the university about $100,000 a year to maintain the course. Alexander says the university was attempting to hire a manager to run the course this summer, but no qualified candidates were presented. Additionally, university leaders say it’s time to transition the 9-hole golf course into a recreation area for students to utilize for other sports including frisbee golf.
