The Liverpool Golf and Country Club may not be around too much longer if a purchase offer is finalized. Our Brad Vivacqua has more about the potential deal.
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. -- The golf course facility at Liverpool Golf and Country Club has been been a mainstay in the community for years. It's popularity even keeps it open all year, and is one of the few courses to do so.
The country club features 18 holes, a driving range, and a short course for kids. The clubhouse also features a ballroom for special events.
However, owner Richard Ajamian confirmed there is an offer on the table for a developer to purchase the 120-acre golf course. He said the developer has until October 31 to act on the deal. If finalized, the developer would likely use the land for a housing development.
For golfers, it means one less golf course. For golf stores, it means a positive outcome.
"Obviously Liverpool has been a structured golf course here in the area for over fifty years and very popular to a lot of our customers, but I'm looking at it as a positive because I think other courses will benefit from it," said David Bacon, General Sales Manager of Golf Galaxy.
Ajamian says property taxes have become a challenge, and have prompted him to consider a sale.
