Storm-ravaged Colorado course dumps Western Golf

A storm-ravaged golf course in Louisville, Colorado is closed until further notice, and it’ll reopen with a new operator.

The city has decided to end its relationship with Western Golf Properties for failing to “take prompt, responsive action” and “carry out duties and responsibilities” after September’s floods inflicted $3.5 million worth of damage on Coal Creek Golf Course. WGP’s response, according to the Boulder Daily Camera, was to lay off most of the course’s staff and to hold what’s been described as “a dramatic sale of inventory in the golf club.”

WGP had managed Coal Creek for more than a decade. For now, the city intends to turn over the course’s operations to its parks and recreation department, but things could change between now and 2015, when the 18-hole track will likely be ready for play again.
