SAN CARLOS — Employees at Apache Stronghold pulled all the flags for the last time on Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021. Owners and management had to make the tough decision to permanently close the 22-year-old golf course as they were facing increasing operational costs with decreasing revenue along with substantial capital needs.
“While it was a very difficult decision to close the course, we are also excited about opportunities for future uses of this extraordinary outdoor area,” said Matt Olin, San Carlos Apache Tribal Gaming Enterprise CEO. “We are in the process of hiring a firm to conduct and complete an Exploratory and Master Land Use Plan, which will incorporate some of the ideas for uses of this beautiful area.”
