Bits and Pieces

Pusch Ridge Course lives on!
The Oro Valley Town Council approved the continued operation of the nine-hole Pusch Ridge golf course last night. The course had been on a three-year probationary period after reopening. The purpose of the probationary period was to determine if the course could be a financially viable entity. The three neighborhood associations that live around the course, the group Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf, town staff and Indigo Golf worked tirelessly together to build course use. They were successful in their efforts.

Centennial Mission to be restarted in about three weeks
