Finances to be checked as city prepares for veterans golf course project

AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) - We are learning more about the  big plans for the Augusta Municipal Golf Course. 

Commissioners approved an agreement with The Veterans Alliance to create a golf training center for wounded veterans..

The veterans would lean golf course maintenance and management.

The Alliance is also promising a six million dollar make-over for The Patch course, nine holes at a time, to make it more playable for the  physically challenge

But before the final okay the city wants to make sure all the finances are in place. 

 "And we put some timelines in the agreement with them that they have to prove to us they have the money in the bank prior to starting the first step which is the double eagle performance center and in a certain point in that construction they have to prove they have the money in the bank prior to starting the first nine," said Recreation and Parks Director Glenn Parker. 

The President of The Warrior Alliance says work on the training center, which will look like two golf holes should begin this fall.
