Members of the public are invited to an open house Saturday to learn more about a new short golf course being proposed for Peninsula State Park.
The six-hole course would be constructed across from the existing driving range on the opposite side of Highway 42.
Peninsula State Park Golf Course Manager and PGA professional Jason Daubner says the course would be set up as a "learning center" with flat greens, flat bunkers and holes just 60 to 120 yards long where golfers of all ages and abilities could play.
Daubner says a total of $500,000 has been committed to the project -- $150,000 from the Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation and pledges from two private donors totaling $350,000.
Daubner says one thing they're working on now is obtaining a variance to their lease agreement with the state.
This is the second open house on the proposal. The first was held in September.
Saturday's open house will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at Peninsula State Park headquarters in Fish Creek.
