Information from the Village of Johnsburg:
CHAPEL HILL GOLF COURSE ACQUISITION FINALIZED!
The Village closed on the acquisition of the Chapel Hill Golf Course property this week and are now taking steps to annex the property into Johnsburg.
As soon as ground conditions permit, we will begin removing dead trees and cleaning up the overgrowth along the Chapel Hill Road fence line.
Discussions have begun with affected utility companies to disconnect utilities from the old clubhouse in preparation for its demolition.
The Village plans to work with the McHenry Township Fire Protection District to utilize the clubhouse for training purposes, which will conclude with a complete burn of the building.
The current management company will winterize the course this fall and the Village will work on details of a new management contract in preparation for the courses operations in the spring.
We are pleased that we were able to preserve this important recreational open space located at a key entrance to the Village and are excited about the opportunities it provides our community.
As always, our goal remains to provide a golf course facility that is well maintained yet affordable for our residents.
