Submitted by CAGCS on Tue, 03/10/2015 - 10:36.

Dear CAGCS Members,

Please take action on this Bill.

The CSGA has supported a Bill that would very friendly to golf courses in Connecticut.

This is one of those rare moments where we would like to support legislation versus defeating legislation. This bill would recognize golf courses as open space and potentially lower you properties local tax bill. This is a positive step to recognize golf as open space and to allow for some tax relief.

I have included a list of committee members and talking points. Please use these and reach out to contact these folks. It is especially important if you see one of your elected officials on this list to let your opinion be known.

TPC River Highlands is a private golf club located in Cromwell, Connecticut, which is a part of the Tournament Players Club network operated by the PGA Tour. The club was founded in 1928 as Middletown Golf Club and became Edgewood Country Club in 1934. In the early 1980s it was bought by the PGA Tour. The golf course was redesigned to TPC standards by renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, and reopened as the "TPC of Connecticut" in 1984. The course underwent further remodeling in 1989, this time by Bobby Weed in consultation with tour pros Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie, and renamed the "TPC at River Highlands".
