The public is invited to an open house on the Holmes Golf Course clubhouse project from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 7 at the current clubhouse, 3701 S. 70th St. Plans and images of the proposed new clubhouse will be on display, and Lincoln Parks and Recreation staff will be available to answer questions about the project and the construction schedule. No formal presentations are planned.
The existing Holmes Golf Course is more than 40 years old. It does not meet current ADA standards for accessibility and also needs significant roof repairs. The new clubhouse will be built adjacent to the existing clubhouse allowing construction of the new building to take place while operation of the existing clubhouse continues. When the new facility is completed, the existing building will be removed.
Construction on the project is scheduled to begin this spring, and the new clubhouse will be open in the spring of 2013. The new clubhouse is funded through municipal golf program revenue, and no tax dollars are being spent on the project.
For more information on the project, contact J.J. Yost, Planning and Construction Manager, at 402-441-8255, or Steve Hiller, Superintendent of Golf Operations, at 402-441-8266. More information on the City's golf program is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
