City leaders in Green are considering the purchase of a 140-acre golf course – but whether it remains a golf course is up for discussion.

The city is looking at acquiring Raintree Country Club from its elderly owner for more than $3 million, and preserving it as green space. The land is currently zoned residential.

The facility includes a driving range and the largest banquet hall in the city. City spokeswoman Valerie Wolford says they’d get an outside company to run both.

It looks likely that the Bridgestone Invitational will be pulled from Akron's Firestone Country Club next year. Golf writer John Feinstein tweeted Monday that a PGA Senior tournament could potentially replace the annual event. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Bridgestone has been one of the most popular tournaments in the world with a huge impact on Northeast Ohio.
