Golf course closes for the season

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids golfers had their last day on one of the greens today.

Jones Park Golf Course will be closed for the rest of the season, but the other 3 courses in Cedar Rapid will remain open as long as weather permits.

The early close will allow the Jones Park Golf staff to move to into their newly furnished club house.

The business has been working out of a trailer since the 2008 flood.

The exterior of the clubhouse was salvageable. But with damage from 3 foot high flood water, the building had to be gutted.

"The clubhouse will be just like it was before... completely refurnished.  All of the coolers, counters everything will be brand new on the inside," Jones Park Golf Course cashier Tom Happ said.

The clubhouse's grand opening will be sometime in November.
