The Claw Golf Course’s condition as it prepares to close

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.

Students who frequent The Claw have been complaining about the lackluster conditions of the whole 120-acre property, located on N 46th St. Law stated that there are no current plans for what the property will be used for once it is shut down.
