Just Sell Erie Golf Club to Real Estate Developers

In the news this week: Millcreek Golf and Learning Center is going to be closed soon due to airport runway expansion. The course has earned a tidy profit for Millcreek since opening a few years ago. In related news, the city of Erie continues to try to pawn off Erie Golf Club.

I'm not in favor of any purchase of Erie Golf Club and think Erie could probably recover the $1.8M in debt by just selling the place to real estate developers. The course is horrible - in bad shape and with bad routing. Though I'm sure it was a fine course in Tillinghast's day, it's definitely not right now, and given the dramatic nature of the land, I'm not sure it could become one unless converted to nine holes and dramatically re-routed. For obvious reasons, that's not an option. In short, it's a horrible golf course undeserving of protection.

I live a mile from the course and won't ever play it. It's not even valuable as a practice ground for the times I can't make the drive to Lake View. The lack of a driving range and the 14 square foot practice green don't help its cause any.
