Riverside Greens Golf Course in Stryker will be holding its final day of operation on Monday, October 31st.
The golf course has been sold but it is not known if it will be reopening with new owners.
Due to the closing of the course, schools who have used the location for their golf teams were looking at their options.
According to the Stryker Athletic Director, Kent Holsopple, the golf course has been a significant part of the community.
“It has been our home course for as long as I know. As a former member, I lived just on the other side of the river from it.”
“It was always very busy from what I could tell. It has always been a very nice golf course and people have enjoyed having it here.”
“Losing it is going to have an impact on the community and we are all going to feel it,” said Holsopple.
Bryan Athletic Director Chad Savage also explained that they always liked the course.
“The course always did a great job working with us and our teams. We have nothing but positive things to say about them. They did a lot for us.”
“We appreciate all that they did for us and the golf program. When Orchid Hills Country Club in Bryan closed, they stepped up and helped us out,” said Mr. Savage.
Both school stated that they are looking at their options and are working with other courses in the area to find a new home course for next season.
