BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Bowling Green State University is closing the school’s golf course.

The university says declining revenues, the cost to upgrade the course and the number of other courses nearby played a role in the decision.

It says it can’t ask students to continue to subsidize the golf course.

The course will close after this year’s season. It first opened in 1965 and sits near the university’s football stadium and along Interstate 75.

The university says it hired a consultant to review the course and decided that even with significant upgrades it would be tough to break even.

Among the shortcomings are an out-of-date clubhouse and a lack of a banquet facility and food services.
