Sierra Meadows Golf Course to remain open

Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014 - 3:20 p.m. - In a just issued statement by Robert Bard, owner of the Sierra Meadows Golf Course in Ahwahnee, the course, which is used for multiple Mariposa County fundraisers, will not close as was announced about a month ago.

The anouncement states, "In response to a meaningful number of the club members who expressed their willingness to assist with additional financial support, owner Robert Bard has rescinded his announced closure of Sierra Meadows."

The course was originally scheduled to close on Dec. 15, the course is now expected to remain open through the fall of 2015 and continue to offer member and public play, tournaments and normal food and beverage operations.

However, in a cost containment effort, beginning in January, the course will operate on a 5-day-per-week basis, open Wednesday through Sunday.

Bard expressed his appreciation for the members' show of support and remains hopeful that this valued community amenity will regain a degree of financial stability. The course will continue to be under the supervision of the long-time General Manager  Mike Best.
