Delta State Asking for Lease Proposals for Old Golf Course Land

Chicot Memorial

CLEVELAND, MS (Ben Caxton) — Delta State University has begun accepting ideas from potential investors for uses for what was up until last year, the University Golf Course. At the time the University was facing $2M in state budget cuts and an even bigger deficit. The closure reportedly saved the school about $250,000 per year. The state legislature last year voted permission for the University to lease the land for other commercial purposes to generate income for the University’s coffers. Now, and over the coming months, the Finance and Administration department will be pouring over the proposals to decide what’s best. Some ideas floated by DSU President Bill LaForge in recent weeks include building housing or a conference center in the area for faculty and educational programs.
