The management change at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course at Gordon Moore Park is on hold. The Alton City Council Committee of the Whole gave preliminary approval to a resolution to lease the property to a company headed by local investors Vern Van Hoy and Tom Long, but another operator has asked to be considered.
Brian Lawson is Vice President and Operations Manager for Cloverleaf Golf Course and its subsidiary, Cloverleaf Golf Management. He says they have been in the golf business for a long time, and that would be of benefit to the city.

The city council laid over the resolution that would have moved the approval of the Van Hoy and Long group toward completion. The city’s golf committee will look at the proposal from Cloverleaf before the next city council meeting on April 23.
