March 20--  The owners of Hawk's Point Golf Course in Vidalia say it will take an annual income of $1.2 million dollars to reopen the golf course.

An exploratory meeting to gauge interest in bringing golf back to Vidalia was held at the course Tuesday night and was led by Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce president Brian Bishop assisted by Sweet Onion Classic chairman Tim Truxel.

Bishop said owner Andy Page is willing to reopen if he can get a commitment from enough people to pay what he says are the annual operating and maintenance costs of the course.  Page closed the course last September when a membership drive was unable to attract 200 members.
