Letter: Nicklaus’ offer to redesign golf courses is great news

Nicklaus’ offer to redesign golf courses is great news

What a terrific gift our community has been offered by Jack Nicklaus – two golf courses designed by the ultimate professional, at no cost to the taxpayers. The existing, tired golf course in Delaware Park would be replaced by one to be proud of. The new course, to be built on land adjacent to South Park, would allow the proper restoration of our beautiful arboretum. This is a win-win for the Olmsted parks: preservation and restoration of this beautiful land for future generations.

Equally important is the creation of an education center, where our inner-city youth would learn multiple job skills.

High-fives to Kevin Gaughan for his creative and thoughtful approach to improve and maintain the integrity of Olmsted’s parks. Kudos to Nicklaus for his gift of experience and willingness. May this project move forward quickly and efficiently.
