Worthington Country Club in Worthington, Minnesota is closing its doors after 92 years of operations due to an inability to meet financial obligations according to :

Worthington Mayor Alan Oberloh recalled a golf study the city conducted a year ago that indicated it takes a community population of 50,000 to support an 18-hole golf course.

“We have two courses in a population of 12,000, one in Adrian and right over the county line, another in Fulda,” Oberloh said. “There are ample courses. A lot of people think that (municipally owned) Prairie View is killing the country club, but I don’t think that’s true. Both of them have their troubles, and a lot of it just has to do with too few golfers in a nutshell.

The city of Worthington actually has two golf course in the community that only has 12,000 residents.
