After 47 years, Pierce County Parks will no longer operate the Fort Steilacoom Golf Course (FSGC).
The course is on land leased from the State of Washington and the property will return to the State’s control.
Pierce College and a few local businesses, including Disc Golf Amory, have expressed interest in providing recreation services on the site. The land is zoned open space and there are restrictions on the type of development or uses that can occur.
The State will make the determination on which recreation activities will occur on the property after Oct. 1, 2018. The 9-hole course, which sees about 16,000 rounds a year, will close on Sept. 24; annual pass members and those with vouchers will be allowed to access the course until those expire on Sept. 30.
Tee-times will not be reserved and cart availability will be limited after September 24.
