Residents of Vigo County met at a forum last night to discuss the future of Terre Haute’s two local golf courses after years of revenue and funding losses.

The golf courses, Rea Park and Hulman Links, have operated with an average deficit of nearly $500,000 per year since 2012.

The Terre Haute City Council has considered proposals for privatization and for outsourcing course management to a private company, but has decided not to pursue those options for the 2018 fiscal year.
