Laramie, Wy –
University of Wyoming trustees have agreed to continue looking at a proposal for a new 27-hole golf course and residential housing development behind Jacoby Golf. It would add a 3 million dollar clubhouse, a nine million dollar golf course and a million and half in other structures. University of Wyoming President Phil Dubois says it should have a positive cash flow in five years. Area banker and Laramie Economic Development Council member Gary Negich says it could be a tremendous boost to Laramie's economy.
But some questioned whether the development is part of U-W's mission. U-W President Phil Dubois believes it is, because it is helping the local economy and because it could generate positive revenue for the University. The trustees set up a sub committee to further study the proposal.
