The City of Jersey Village has owned and operated the Jersey Meadow Golf Club since June 2000. The golf course was originally created in the late 1950’s to serve as an employee-only golf course for the nearby Cameron Iron Works.
Even if you’re not a golfer, the golf course serves a very important purpose – it is the most cost effective way to maintain a very large piece of manicured green space that contributes toward flood mitigation and as a buffer against the noise of Highway 290.
I have been a staunch supporter of keeping and making continued investment in Jersey Meadow Golf Club, including construction of a new golf course clubhouse scheduled to break ground this summer. The new clubhouse is expected to open during the summer of 2024.
