Not trying to be pessimistic- just wondering.

Turns out our DEC contact is a golfer himself and he is very enthused with the idea. Even better, there is money available in the capital closing fund to move forward on this project NOW. I was informed that the town wants to have the course designed and the construction well underway, if not finished, by years end. I know it's kind of sudden, I surely was not expecting any movement on this until later in the year. I'm trying to "slow" them down a little so that we can come up with a well designed and challenging course, and not just throw it together. Once things thaw, I may be looking for some volunteers. We're working on expanding the limited parking area now. Another meeting is being planned for a couple of weeks from now and I will have more info then. Depending on what date and time the meeting will be, my supervisor is welcoming anyone available to come by and give their thoughts. I've e-mailed Ryan Hand and Doug Corea with this info already, but the more support shown, the better. I will post more info as it becomes available. Thank you all for your interest already.
