FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) — The Frankfort Community Golf Course is trying to stay open.

The 18-hole public course has come a long way since 2016.

According to Oliphant Golf Management, that's the year they took over the club.

The management team presented its budget for approval.

After a few shaky years, the community has backed the golf course and its developments.

The city council approved the budget by a vote of five to one.

The head golf pro says they have overhauled the golf course with major improvements and isn't surprised the budget passed.

“If you're able to create an environment where the youth of the community feel wanted and welcome and you can give them that extra, that extra something that maybe they're missing somewhere else in their lives…a golf course is the perfect place to do it,” said Erich Norenberg.

The management team is based out of Wisconsin and the head pro used to work up there.

Teamwork has been the driving force to get the course back on par.
