SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

 

O.C. Welch threw a party at Bacon Park on Saturday night, complete with a live band, food, and golf.

Savannah City Council voted unanimously on Monday to award O.C. Welch Golf Properties Inc. the management contract for Bacon Golf Course. Welch says he could not be happier.  

The contract is for 12 years, with an option to renew for an additional four years in 2026, which will also be the 100th Anniversary of the opening of Bacon Park. 

Welch's plan includes an investment of more than $2 million dollars, as well as a redesign that would return the course to its original layout conceived by famed golf architect, Donald Ross, in 1925.
