Redding Rancheria plans to convert golf course property into park

The Redding Rancheria won't be selling a golf course after receiving less than acceptable offers for the property, The Redding Record-Searchlight reports.

The tribe announced the closure of the River Tasalmi Golf Club in Redding, California, in March. Plans now call for it to be converted into a park after just two offers were received, the paper said.

“They just weren’t even close to being feasible, in my opinion,” Gary Hayward, the president of the Redding Rancheria Economic Development Corp., told hte paper. “I think the offers were based on seeing if we were willing to just get rid of it . . . and the tribe wasn’t willing to just get rid of the property because it has other value to us.”

The tribe bought the nine-hole golf course for $1.1 million in 2010. But it was never profitable, Hayward told the paper back in March.
