COUNCIL -- Fifteen years ago when Boise Cascade shut down the mill, many local businesses took a hit that was tough to rebound from, and some never did.

The town's only golf course was one of them, but now it is making a comeback. Though it might not seem like big deal to some, most people look at it as another sign of Council's comeback.

A year ago, a local developer who owned the course, decided he couldn't afford to keep it going and offered to lease it to local landscaper Andy Goold for $50 a year.

Goold had some equipment and was able to get the course in playing shape and he signed up 26 members at $250 for a year-round pass.

Those 26 people have been spreading the word about the new-again Council Greens Golf Course and potential members have started checking it out.

The course is open and for just $12 players can hit the Council links.

It is just a quarter of a mile from downtown, so after a round of golf, a meal and a cold drink is just a pitching wedge away.
