ROCK ISLAND, IL - Aug. 31, 2010 - Because of extensive financial difficulties, the Rock Island Arsenal Garrison is assuming ownership and operation of the private Rock Island Arsenal Golf Club under its Army Recreation Program. The goal is to retain all members, Military or private, who desire to continue their affiliation with the Club.

Rock Island Arsenal is also seeking support from Quad City Mayors and the Quad Cities Chamber so the Garrison can provide the general public access to the course. By opening the golf course to the public, the Garrison will be able to maximize the use of this world-class course and also generate funds tosupport critical Military and Family programs. Opening to the general public will also benefit the Quad Cities as the Arsenal continues to build on the strong relationships established over the years.

Arsenal officials envision a bright future for the course as an Army recreational facility. Further information on rates, memberships and other club programs are forthcoming.
