Judge Fields fighting to keep Kincaid golf course open

Judge Fields wrote, "Our intent in this lease would be for several years and would include not only the course but also the clubhouse, all related golf equipment and both golf specific maintenance and storage facilities. In turn we would sublease this facility to a qualified developer which would operate and maintain the course on our behalf.”

Judge Executive David Fields shared with the court at a Special Called Meeting on February 1, 2018 that what he hoped was a good arrangement for the purchase of the golf course at Kincaid Lake turned into an unfortunate disappointment.

Fields, along with the help of several other individuals in the county put together a proposal for the purchase of the golf course by an individual and submitted it to Frankfort back in October 2017. The people he spoke to in Frankfort assured him that the proposal was a good one and that they would contact him in three months. Frankfort also told him that under no circumstances was he to contact them.
