County, Newbold Agree On Property For Disc Golf Course
The town of Newbold is a step closer to expanding property to house an 18-hole disc golf course.
Promoters think the course could become a destination site for tourists. The Oneida County Board Tuesday approved a $15,000 offer from the town for 18 acres next to Newbold property. The town has designed a 9 hold course and wanted the tax-delinquent property owned by the county next door to expand the course. Town Chair Dave Kroll says the town electors approved the purchase...
"....the electors authorized the town board to move forward with this purchase, the offer of $15,000. That passed, it was approved by the electors on a vote of 39 in favor, one opposed and three abstentions...."
Kroll says they want a facility that will help the entire county...
"....we intend to build something that will be good for the public. It will have some economic benefits to the entire county and that is our goal...."
The property is about a half-mile west of Highway 47 on Ole Lake Road, about seven miles north of Rhinelander. The county rejected a late offer from a party who offered $23,000 for the land. The board felt they had accepted the offer from Newbold after the town's electors approved the purchase price.
