ERIE, Pa. -- Millcreek Township has received a grant that will pave the way to reconfigure and reopen the Millcreek Golf and Learning Center.
On Tuesday morning, supervisors formally approved the $77,500 "Keystone Community Grant" from the Department of Community and Economic Development.
The grant, along with $155,000 that Millcreek budgeted this year, will help the township rebuild the course that lost nearly half of its holes due to the runway extension project six years ago.
"There's one new hole that has to be constructed from scratch,” supervisor Brian McGrath said. “There are new tee boxes, new greens to be constructed, so there is going to be a considerable amount of work going on down there.”
The DEP donated the course to the township in 2002, and have been urging supervisors to get the course operational once again.
McGrath says if work goes as planned, golfers may be able to hit the links by mid summer 2018.
