The struggling Chesapeake Hills Golf Club in Lusby, Md. recently was purchased by Calvert County from the Maryland Economic Development Corp. for $3.6 million.

County officials said they planned to invest an additional $650,000 in the property to fund repairs and kick-start operations at the course.

The course measures 6,545 yards, with greens fees ranging from $25 to $50.

Originally designed by Jim Thompson and opened in 1968, the course received $1.5 million in improvements as recently as 2005.
