Closing Willowdale would be tragic loss
Our View - Oct 21, 2010
The planned closing of Willowdale Country Club in Luling on November 1comes as a shock and great disappointment to many residents of St. Charles Parish. It is a happening they feared but did not definitely foresee.
But such is the case with many country clubs these days, especially facing the hard times our poor economy is giving us. It seems to be the lay of the land with that type institution which depends upon club loyalty and support by those who can reap any type of benefit.
Such recreational facilities in residential neighborhoods certainly provide a benefit to families, especially those with children who can make use of a swimming pool, tennis courts and gyms nearby their homes. And, of course, golf is a sport that a person can play from teenage years to later life. Those attractions also provide a social atmosphere that adds a pleasant atmosphere to areas.
