What is the Hiawatha Golf Course? Minneapolis has 3 ideas

Hiawatha Golf Course is subject to two public meetings on Monday and Tuesday evenings, as Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board does try to figure out what is associated with the flooded land.

The future of the Cedar Avenue course in southern Minneapolis has been clouded since 2014, when the discovery of a massive 262 million gallons of groundwater per year in nearby Hiawatha Lake to keep the course tangible was heavily flooded – several times the amount agreed with the DNR.

The Parks Board voted to close the 18-hole course, which was reduced to 9 holes after the floods, in 2017, but this was delayed because other land uses were requested.

It is now planned to reduce groundwater pumping to 94 million gallons per annum, which would result in some sections of the current course being flooded during the year.

The question now is what will happen to the land when the pumping is reduced, and The Parks Board is seeking feedback on three recently made concepts.

Thank you for watching!
