The owner of Hawthorne Valley Golf Club in Solon has kept to his word.
Unable to attract 300 paid members by his self-set February 1st deadline, owner Fred Rzepka has closed the Donald Ross designed Solon golf course.
As of late February only 162 members had verbally committed to join for 2016 — none paid — so the decision to end the membership drive and close the golf course was made.
A call to the club now plays an automated voicemail message stating ‘thanks but we’ve closed’.
