Letter to the editor: Marine on leave misses Pinewood

As a 35 year resident of Elk River, I am very upset with the closing of Pinewood Golf Course. My wife has now retired and planned on learning the game of golf and I had told her Pinewood is the place to learn. In the past I have taken all three of my grandsons to Pinewood to golf.

Just this past weekend I talked to a young friend here on leave from the Marines and we talked about getting together for a quick nine holes. He said let’s meet at Pinewood, where we have gone many times. I had to tell him it was closed. He was shocked at the news. How did our council allow this closure to happen?—Doug Larson, Elk River
