Tom Watson Junior Golf Course At Mozingo Lake Recreation Park Groundbreaking Ceremony

A groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the Tom Watson Junior Golf Course at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park is scheduled for Thursday, June 19th at 3:00 p.m. While the Junior Golf Course Committee fundraising efforts are ongoing, the group has raised sufficient funds and secured a construction loan to begin the project. The nine (9) hole short course is designed in partnership with the Tom Watson Golf Course Design Group, Inc. and will serve for generations as the vehicle for junior golf instructional programs.

The Tom Watson Junior Golf Course at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park will be built to United States Golf Association specifications with irrigated fairways, regulation size greens and bunkers which all reflect the championship style of the parent eighteen (18) hole course at Mozingo Lake. The course will include a combination of par 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s each with three sets of tees that challenge youth of all ages and abilities. The course will be situated on a thirty (30) acre tract of land located just north of the Mozingo Lake Golf Course parking lot and East of Hole #10.

Mid-America Golf & Landscape, Inc. has been contracted to begin construction in early July and reach substantial completion by October of this year. The course is financed through a fundraising campaign led by the Junior Golf Course Committee and Nodaway County Economic Development. Funds for construction have been made possible by significant donations from the Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation, the Rickard Family Trust, various local businesses and individuals along with donation of in-kind services.
