June 26-- An escrow fund has been set up to hold donations from citizens interested in bringing golf back to Vidalia. The city has been without a golf course for the last two years.
At a meeting Tuesday night in the former clubhouse of Rocky Creek Golf Course, fund raising campaign spokesman Michael Kay reported more than 60% of the $500,000 goal has been pledged and that Vidalia attorney Tom Everett has established an escrow account to manage contributions.
The campaign deadline is July 31 and Kay said if the goal is not met by then, the money will be returned to donors. He expressed optimism that the campaign will succeed and said a corporation with a governing board of directors will be formed to oversee rebuilding nine holes at the former Rocky Creek course in the next 12 months.
