Future of LSU Golf Course still unclear; state budget could be the final nail in coffin - Andrea Gallo, the Advocate

Two things spell trouble for the LSU Golf Course: the university’s funding could take a huge hit when the state budget is approved later this year, and university officials are examining the best use of every inch of campus space for its new master plan. The LSU Golf Course remains open for now, though a committee has spent the past several months reviewing its operations and trying to determine if it’s worth keeping open. As the university has expanded its footprint via academic buildings, residence halls and parking lots, the golf course has continued to eat up 127 acres of space that LSU officials say might have a better use. LSU officials said they are no longer comfortable putting a time frame on when they will make a decision about the golf course’s future, though they had said in November that they expected to have an answer by spring. http://theadvocate.com/news/12134547-123/future-of-lsu-golf-course
