Aurora– The Aurora Golf and Country Club closed late Thursday, but its president says it might reopen within a few days as a public course after a new lender finalizes financing arrangements.
On Friday afternoon, Scott Brubaker, president of the member-owned club, confirmed that the club had decided to cease operations. A group of private investors is negotiating with a buyer to take over and operate it as a public course, he said.
“I believe the new investors have a great vision for the property and are committed to making this course a great asset to all the citizens of Aurora,” said Brubaker. “It’s a beautiful golf course, and our goal has always been to see it remain as a golf course.”
The group of private investors is called Aurora Recreation LLC and one of them is Aurora resident Hunter Banbury, according to Brubaker.
Banbury could not be reached to comment by press time.
