The Claw at USF Golf Course will be shutting down its public operations beginning Sept. 5, according to a universitywide email from President Rhea Law.
The Claw’s closure is a result of financial loss and instability. The university was losing roughly $200,000 annually to operate the course.
To rebuild the clubhouse and golf cart storage facility that were forced to shut down due to old age, the university would have needed to invest millions of dollars, according to the email.
