The Bowie City Council has authorized the City Manager to enter into a golf management agreement with a new management company to operate the Bowie Golf Course. Indigo Sports will take over management duties and will work to reopen the course in the coming weeks.
On October 18, City Council unanimously approved an agreement with the firm, which is based in Reston, Virginia, and currently operates courses all over the US, including two courses in Anne Arundel County. Over the next few weeks, Indigo will be hiring employees and setting up operations. The City has been maintaining the golf course grounds since it closed on October 1 and looks forward to welcoming golfers soon. City staff has also been making numerous minor repairs to the structures and cleaning the facilities to make sure they are safe and ready for business.
The course closed at the beginning of October when the City was unable to come to terms with another management company. The previous course operators retired on September 30 after 40 years running the Bowie Golf Course.
