County opens bidding for public golf course

County officials have invited 11 companies to submit bids to construct a public golf course in Pasadena.

The companies were screened by a 10-member advisory committee. Only financially sound companies that have the expertise to build and operate the golf course were invited to submit bids.

The course will be built on a 130-acre former horse farm now owned by the county on Fort Smallwood Road, near Water Oak Point Road. Pasadena Councilman Carl G. Holland, who appointed the members of the advisory committee, is pushing for the course to be privately financed by a developer, who will then recoup expenses through greens fees and other user fees.

Bids must be received by Feb. 15. They will be scrutinized during a 45-day evaluation period, with former Recreation and Parks Director William Rinehart making the final decision, Mr. Holland said.

The councilman said the committee should be ready to make a recommendation by the latter part of next year.
