Here’s the link to the newscast, and the article is below:  KTVB newscast on Osprey Meadows

TAMARACK — The Osprey Meadows Golf Course at Tamarack Resort is closed. An economic element for the Donnelly area has been mired in legal proceedings for a while. Now, KTVB has learned the golf course will not open this season.

Golf Digest ranked Osprey Meadows as No. 1 in its survey of America’s Best New Public Courses $75 and Over in 2006. And just last year, Golf Digest listed it as #37 in its ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.

However, as of right now, the course is closed and there are no operating plans for this summer, according to Tamarack Municipal Association (TMA), the master owner’s association at Tamarack Resort.

TMA has been operating Osprey Meadows Golf Course for the last three seasons. TMA says it managed and operated the course at the request of the course’s owner West Mountain Golf LLC (WMG), who could no longer afford to do so.

However, WMG’s main creditor, Retirement Security Plan & Trust (RSPT), is suing TMA over $800,000 for rent and taxes for its management of the course for the last three years.
TMA had said earlier this year the cost of litigation, among other things, created too much of a burden for them. As a result, TMA announced it would be handing over golf course operations to RSPT in April 2015 with a chance for the creditor to operate the course.

In a statement, Tim Flaherty, executive director of TMA, said, “We remain optimistic that the involved parties will again seek someone to operate the golf course in the future, but, at this time, we want to let everyone know that there are no operating plans for this summer. We will keep you updated on golf course operations as they become available.”

The attorney for RSPT was unavailable for comment.

KTVB will keep you posted if we hear from them and the fate of Osprey Meadows at Tamarack.
