The owners of Stonebridge Golf Club in Gretna say a federally funded drainage project could shut them down at least temporarily and perhaps for good.
They want to sell the property.
“We’re not willing to sustain the additional losses caused by the consequences of this project that’s going to go down the middle of our golf course,” one owner told the crowd at a public meeting Wednesday night to address the issue.
Construction of the drainage project is expected to take two and a half years.
Parish leaders say the $20 million project will help protect homes in the area.
Construction is set to begin in six months. The club’s owners say they will keep the property from becoming an eyesore during the period it’s shutdown.
