We can add 3 more courses to @mcanadiens post from February. Madden, Hawk, and Eagle all gone. Played them lots last year, and a decent amount before covid. Now they are gone forevermore.

Also the Falcon which is a par 3 course. That’s 72 holes gone in our city.

That's why I mentioned the posts from February. I guess it wasn't official then, but it is now.

Sadly it is. I’m about to post a blog as a tribute to them.

The only one I can think of where I played is Sable Oaks Golf Club in South Portland, Maine. Played there once with @boogielicious and @Valleygolfer.

Oak Ridge Golf Course was right by my house, but I never played there. It’s been Oak Ridge Park since 2009.

Not really golf courses but a few driving ranges in Tampa have closed up the past few years. It's sucks because the golf course where the golf team plays (that I coach) doesn't have a range so we basically are now reduced to hitting balls into a net. Kinda hard to get a good sense of where the ball is going when hitting into a net. 

What Tampa area courses have closed please?

Cool.  I grew up in Tampa and went to Jefferson.  I am currently teaching 8th grade Social Studies in the metro Atlanta area, but I am looking to move to high school and trying to coach golf.

West End Golf Club in Gainesville Florida closed recently. This course was a lighted par 60 with great practice areas! It was so easily accessible since it was lighted and had tons of driving range space! I had my first lesson here and spent a lot of time there at the driving range and practice greens!

The International in Bolton, Mass closed this year. A real tragedy, was two outstanding tracks. The owners just grabbed the money from the deposits for functions (it was a big wedding venu) and locked the doors. Hopefully someone buys it, I know it's driving a lot of members to my club.

The two most popular public golf courses in my area of the Philly burbs, Center Square and Limekiln, are now becoming large residential developments.
