$750k 'Great Lakes' Grant Included Reverting Golf Course To Natural State

Ottawa County's parks department bought the 122-acre Holland Country Club in 2008. The county then received a $750,000 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2010. Part of that money was used to restore 62 acres of golf course turf grass to a more natural state.

According to a White House budget document reported by different media outlets, the president’s budget will include large cuts in the ongoing Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
