City Council Approves O. C. Welch as Bacon Park Manager

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

O.C. Welch Golf Enterprises is now the proud new manager of Bacon Park. The City Council approved the change at Monday's meeting.  

Welch will now be in charge of managing, operating and maintaing the 27-hole golf course and its facilities for the next 12 years.

The course was previously managed by a private company for more than 24 years. It is currently in need of improvements.

Council members hope that this change will restore the golf course to the conditon it once was.

"I think the community around it would really love to see a nice first class golf course," said Alderman Mary Ellen Sprague. "I think with the new person operating it and the new company operating it that we will have a fist class public golf course."

Only one other bid was submitted and that was by Michael Collins, the on site manager for the last few years.
