Golf Course Falls Victim to High Grain Prices

Jun 16, 2011

The new owner of the Whittemore Golf Course in Algona, Iowa has plowed it under to put in a corn crop for this year.  This nine hole course was originally built in 1969.  The new buyer decided that it would make more money as a farm than as a golf course.

This has caused some rift in the community since they now have lost their local course.  Here is an article on the change over.

I have a feeling that we might start to see more of this happen in smaller corn belt cities if corn and bean prices stay high and the golf participation continues to decrease.
