Golf Chatter: Country Club of Ashland Rumor

Northeast Ohio Golf

News and Notes for Northeast Ohio GolfMore golf rumors, whispers, innuendos and half-truths:

– Add this one to the ‘bogus story’ category: rumors that the Country Club of Ashland is in financial distress and may not open for the 2009 season are FALSE.

“I don’t know where these things come from,” sighed Dan Priest, head pro at Ashland. “The club is open, we are still private and expect a great year. The dining room is now open for business to the public, but that has no affect on the club or course. The Ashland Am-Am is on the schedule for June 13-14 and we’re looking forward to it.”

Good news for one of the top Northeast Ohio golf tournaments of the summer…
