Those who'd like to comment on a proposal to construct a six-hole golf course at Peninsula State Park have until May 10 to provide input.
The project would include construction of a six-hole short golf course, a starter and staging building, vault toilet facility and 20 vehicle or less paved parking lot that would be located on existing park land across Highway 42 from the driving range at Peninsula State Park. The project parcel is approximately 5 acres in size and is bordered by Highway 42 and Holand Road.
The short course would be managed and operated by the Peninsula Golf Course Associates (PGA), which runs the park's existing 18-hole course.
Peninsula State Park Superintendent Kelli Bruns says the short course would allow beginning golfers to learn and practice golf in a more realistic environment before progressing to a regulation nine- or 18-hole course.
The vision for the proposed course is spelled out in a proposed variance to the park's master plan. Written or emailed comments on the proposed variance are due by May 10, 2013 and should be sent to Jeff Prey, Wisconsin State Parks, PO Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707-7921 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
