Golf Course News Magazine :: News :: Menard County in Illinois approves golf course development (448 words)
The Menard County Board this week approved a special-use permit that will allow developers to proceed with plans to build an 18-hole golf course in East Bluff, a subdivision off Illinois 123 that overlooks Petersburg and the Sangamon River.
Developers Doug Treadwell and Dale and Pat VanEtten applied for the county permit after the Petersburg City Council last month rejected their request to annex to the city nearly 482 acres intended for the semiprivate Illinois National Golf Club and residential development.
Steve Rozanski, Menard County zoning administrator and county coordinator, said Wednesday a public hearing was held regarding the developers' application for a special-use permit.
