The City of Springfield has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the sale or lease of Reid Park Golf Course. The property is approximately 380-acres with frontage on Bird Road and Leffel Lane on the southeast edge of Springfield.
The City purchased the property in the 1960s primarily as a site for golf. Two 18-hole golf courses, the North Course and the South Course, have operated since the late 1960s. The property includes related service and maintenance facilities associated with the golf operation, as well as a recreation park with shelter houses, restrooms and woods. Since 2000, National Trail Parks and Recreation District (NTPRD) has operated the courses and recreation park with City funding.
Over the years, several other golf courses that are open to the public have been built in the surrounding area. Due to the City’s financial situation and the availability of public golf facilities in the community has led the City Commission to instruct the City Manager to pursue alternative plans for the real estate. The proposals received through this process will help guide the City Commission in its decision with respect to this real estate. The City may accept one or more proposals or it may reject all proposals.
All proposals must be received by 3:00 PM, EDT, on Friday, September 2nd, 2016. Proposals received after this time will not be considered.
