Sligo Creek golf course to stay open

By Washington Post editors

Sligo Creek Golf Course, the nine-hole Silver Spring course beloved by many for its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, will remain open indefinitely.

The decision, announced Tuesday, is a reversal by Montgomery County’s revenue authority, which had been saying for more than a year that the course is too expensive to operate. A task force had recommended looking to the private sector for a solution.

Close one of the 18 hole courses to fund this one.

This course is a valuable asset. Close to major populations, some interesting shots. I still wish people would wait at the last hole--I've had drives dropping around my heard more than once.
