Washington: Third Golf Course Closes in Snohomish County
Sunday, 06 October 2013 21:34

According to the Daily Herald in Everett, Washingon:

A lagging golf economy has claimed another Snohomish County course.

Flowing Lake Golf Course, located east of Snohomish, has announced that it will close on Sept. 29. Financial problems related to the lingering effects of the recent economic downturn are the cause, according to owner Stan Laz.

"After the great recession, golf went down and never really responded," Laz said. "We've been waiting for it to turn around, but it never did."

For the past few years, he added, "it was basically costing us more to run it than it brings in."

Flowing Lake becomes the third public golf course in Snohomish County to close in the past year. Wellington Hills Golf Course outside of Woodinville closed in October, and Ballinger Lake Golf Course, owned by the city of Mountlake Terrace, closed in November.
