According to a press release issues by the company that operates both Sawmill Golf Club and its sister course Loggers Trail Golf Course, both in Stillwater, Minnesota, Sawmill Golf Club has closed at the end of September. Long a favorite because of its very reasonable greens fees, it was often a stop for Twin Cities golfers every season.

From the press release:

Sawmill Golf Club, Inc. announced today that the thirty year lease on the 18-hole Sawmill Golf Course property will not be renewed. This will allow the staff and management team to focus 100% of their time on Loggers Trail Golf Course. Loggers Trail Golf Course is located in the City of Grant just off of Manning Avenue at 11950 80th st.

"Thirty years ago a small group of golfers signed a lease on a nine hole cow pasture and turned it into an eighteen hole golf destination that focused on providing a great golf experience at a great price," stated Dan Pohl, President of Sawmill Golf Club, Inc. "We are very proud of what we accomplished and we want to thank all the people who played and contributed to the great golf experience at Sawmill."

Now it is time to focus on taking Loggers Trail to the next level," continued Pohl. "Plans are under way to build a new club house to support a pro shop and golf grill but also to provide space for wedding receptions and special community events. We hope to be breaking ground on the new facility next year."
