Chicopee Woods Golf Course is about to spend $2.2 million in capital improvements even as the golf industry has seen declines in golfers and courses. Hall County commissioners recently approved backing the bond debt and while projected future industry growth is slight, county officials are confident the golf course will continue to thrive. The original 18-hole course was built in 1990 and nine more holes were built in 2000, said RK Whitehead, board chairman of the Chicopee Woods Area Park Commission.
