Old clubhouse to be Fayette County training facility

Fayette County is converting a former golf course clubhouse into a new training and office space for the sheriff’s department.

The Board of Commissioners voted 5-0 on Nov. 8 to award $1.13 million to Oak Construction Group, LLC, for the renovation of the former Links clubhouse on property east of Fayetteville. The building, which the county says has been “empty and derelict for several years,” will be converted into offices, classrooms and gathering space for officers and staff. The winning bid, the lowest of four submitted, came in just under the budgeted amount of $1.2 million for the project.

Other portions of the defunct golf course, which was purchased in 2014 as part of the East Fayetteville Bypass plan, has already been repurposed for a law enforcement gun range.
