Morehead State University is the new owner and operator of Eagle Trace Golf Course in Rowan County. MSU provided $1.3 million of the price tag, which was supplemented by $300,000 in public funds.
According to MSU President Dr. Wayne Andrews, the 135 acre course was purchased to create a venue for fund raising, athletic and teaching activities, as well as, making the area more attractive for prospective MSU employees and others.
Eagle Trace replaces Sunny Brook, which had served as the university's official course since 1965. That property will be sold in the near future with part of the proceeds used to restore Eagle Trace to its original condition.
Eagle Trace is located near exit 133 off Interstate 64.
