Workers cut grass on the property of Tri-County Country
Club.

More than a year after it was closed down, there are signs of life at the Tri-County Country Club.


Cutting its way through the high grass that has taken over the nine-hole course located off of Ky. 1232 Thursday and Friday, was a John Deere tractor driven by former member Joe Roberts of Corbin.

Roberts declined to comment pending the completion of the deal.

Roberts’ fiance´, Crystal Lester, posted on her Facebook pictures a series of photos showing the work to cut and bail the former fairways.

Lester added that the goal is to have it open by April 1.

If that date holds true, it would be almost two years to the day when the course was closed.
