UPDATE: PDT golf group reaches agreement to purchase course; public meeting tonight
Members of a committee organizing a community purchase of the Pomme de Terre Golf Club have reached an agreement in principle to purchase the golf course.
The committee met with owners Joe Riley, John Riley and Chris Leman on Sunday.
Committee member Doug Stahman reported that the group has raised $500,000 from 214 individuals and couples and 32 corporate groups. Stahman said that is a great accomplishment for so little time. The club was put up for sale on Feb. 22.
Shares are being sold at $1,000 each. The group's goal is to raise $600,000 to buy the course and $88,000 for an equipment loan. Stahman says the group has until March 25 to reach its commitment.
