Since the State gave this course back to the city of Owensboro, nothing but good has happened. The course is in the best shape in years and the green fees have gone down. There is a senior rate now too. Membership includes play at the nine hole Hillcrest muni, which, by the way, has also seen a transformation. Glad this happened.
