Blackthorn golf course could be sold soon

A South Bend public golf course could soon be sold to a private investor.

Two recent appraisals value Blackthorn at $1.6 million.

Appraisers looked at eight or nine other golf course properties in the region that have sold to reach that number.

They did not look at what the city paid to build it.

The city says it wants to sell it, but doesn't have any interested buyers.

The Redevelopment Commission says it is investigating options.
