Donaldson Golf Course golf course to close after 50 years of business


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA)- The sign says it all; Save Donaldson Golf Course.

The golf course has been there for more than 50 years under the same tenants.

The historic course was built during World War II and served as a training ground for soldiers.

That was before it became one of the first golf courses in Greenville to allow black golfers to play.

But now the owners of the land are saying the tenants have to be out before the end of August.

The course sees around 500 golfers a week and caters to mostly seniors, vets, and kids learning to play because of the cheap prices and lenient rules.

People say if it closes they won’t have anywhere else to go.

Greenville Council Members and SC-TAC says the land will probably hold a test track.

They say it’s a business decision and they let the tenants know four years ago this was coming.

However, it still doesn’t ease the mind of members who’ve been golfing faithfully on the land for decades.
