The golf course at F.E. Warren will not reopen in the spring and will remain closed.
The golf course had been operating at a financial loss for six years and Airmen accounted for less than 10 percent of total rounds played at the course.
“Closing the course was not an easy decision to make,” said Col. Peter Bonetti, 90th Missile Wing commander. “There are a lot of emotional responses to this action, but if an activity is losing money as well as not serving our Airmen, we needed to look at other options, to include closing the course.”
The driving range and the clubhouse will remain open and the clubhouse will now sell food year-round. Plans are being made to convert the golf course into an Outdoor Adventure Area that will open April 4. The planned conversion will include a paintball course, archery range, axe throwing range and a reinvigoration of the disc course.
