U-W's Golf Course Effort Moves Forward

Laramie, Wy – Interest is growing for the University of Wyoming's new Golf Course expansion project. U-W officials announced that around 140 people have expressed interest in lots, without much advertising. They've also been given more land for the project and have been able to determine that the site won't have a negative impact on Laramie's water supply. U-W President Phil Dubois told trustees that the project can make money for the University and enhance Laramie's economy. But it will not take away from U-W's mission.
Trustee Taylor Haynes expressed discomfort that U-W could be competing with private interests. The project is being developed by the same group that developed Sheridan's Powder Horn Golf Club.
