Money trouble means Fort Worth golf course closing

A North Texas public golf course in use since the 1930s has been slated for closure due to dwindling use.

The Fort Worth City Council has voted to close the Z Boaz Golf Course by Sept. 30. The complex will be converted into a community park.

The council decision came Tuesday night. Officials say the 138-acre golf course lost about $234,000 last year.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the course was built in 1930 but closed during World War II. Golf great Byron Nelson headlined its 1950 re-opening celebration.
