Groundbreaking ceremony


Doug Bataille, Knox County Parks and Recreation senior director, speaks prior to the groundbreaking for a 1,200 square foot clubhouse at the Knox Area Jr. Golf Association Concord Park Par-3 course, 10909 Northshore Drive, during a ceremony Wednesday, March 14. With construction expected to start this week, the $101,000 clubhouse will be located between the current 40-year-old clubhouse and Northshore Drive adjacent to the course. The new clubhouse, projected to be operational by early June, will feature a pro shop, porches in front and in back [300 total square feet], bathroom access from the outside and a translucent roof to help save electricity, said Keith McElroy, KAJGA official and PGA professional. The current tennis courts will be relocated away from Northshore closer to Fort Loudoun Lake, adding more parking closer to the new clubhouse. Pictured left to right behind Bataille and enlarged blueprints of the future clubhouse are Buddy Heins, KAJGA Board of Directors president, with his daughter; Sandy Hull, former KAJGA Board president; Blaise Burch, KAJGA Board vice president; Ben Easterday, KAJGA Board of Directors; Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale, and Ronald G. Bomers, chief executive officer for BarberMcMurry architects. Contractor (no representative pictured) is Johnson & Galyon, Inc.
