SARAH?

TOM AND CAITLIN, WILLOW CREEK CLOSED LAST FALL AND NOW NEW OWNERS ANDY BLACK AND WILL LANCASTER ARE VERY EXCITED TO SEE THEIR DREAM OF OWNING A

GOLF COURSE COME TRUE.

<< WILL: "IT'S REALLY BEEN A WHIRL WIND THE LAST FOUR TO SIX WEEKS." ON FRIDAY, NEW OWNERS ANDY BLACK AND WILL

LANCASTER MADE THE ANOUNCEMENT THAT THEY HAD SIGNED A THREE YEAR LEASE.

WHAT ONCE WAS A DREAM FOR BOTH OF THEM...

IS NOW A REALITY.

WILL: "BOTH OF US HAVE BEEN IN THE GOLF BUSINESS FOR 20 YEARS AND PGA PROFESSIONALS FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE A LOT OF TIES TO THE GOLF COMMUNITY IN ROCHESTER.

BOTH OF US STARTED OUR CAREERS AT NORTHERN HILLS." ANDY: "AND THE FACT THAT I WAS AT PINE ISLAND AND HE WAS AT ZUMBROTA, THEY ARE CLOSE TO EACH OTHER.

SO WE KIND OF KNOW HOW EVERYTHING'S BEEN GOING FOR US OVER THE YEARS.

SO WE FEEL LIKE BY TEAMING UP, WE CAN MAKE IT EVEN BETTER." WITH A RAPIDLY GROWING TO-DO LIST THAT NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE RE-OPENING THIS SPRING..

THE PAIR IS HARD AT WORK.

WILL: "OFFICE STUFF LIKE GETTING INTERNET, TV, AND PHONE HOOKED BACK UP, TO GETTING THE WORD OUT." ANDY: "HIRING EMPLOYEES, THAT ONE OF THEM.

THATS ON THE LIST.

BUT REALLY JUST LEARNING THE ROPES AND LEARNING OUR WAY AROUND THE PLACE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU." BLACK AND LANCASTER ARE ALSO PLANNING ON DOING

SOME UPDATES AND RENOVATIONS IN THE LOUNGE AND GOLF SHOP.

ANDY: "I REALLY FEEL THAT WE WANT TO MAKE THIS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE GO FOR A GREAT EXPERIANCE.

FAMILY, FRIENDS, JUST COME ON OUT AND REALLY HAVE A GREAT TIME.

THAT'S ALL THAT PEOPLE WANT, THEY WANT TO GOLF AND HAVE A GREAT TIME." >>

BLACK AND LANCASTER SAY THE WEBSITE, FACEBOOK PAGE, AND PHONE NUMBER FOR THE GOLF COURSE WILL ALL STAY THE SAME.

IT MAY TAKE A FEW DAYS TO GET EVERYTHING UP AND RUNNING OR TRANSFERED OVER FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER..

BUT SAY FOLKS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO REACH OUT IF THEY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

REPORTING LIVE IN THE STUDIO, SARAH GANNON, KTTC NEWS.
