​​​​​​​​​Unfortunately the Sigel Golf Course may not open in 2015 due to lack of money.  Over the past 4 years, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Jefferson County Conservation District teamed up and made a detailed inspection of the golf course.  They wanted to make sure all of the storm water runoff would be clean before it entered the nearby small stream.  Since the golf course is the lowest point before entering the stream, we were charged with the responsibility at our expense.  We were ordered to fill in one pond and la out hundreds of feet of silt fencing along the stream.  From there an Erosion and Sedimentation Plan was adopted at our expense mandating hundreds of feet of perforated drainage pipes ranging in size from 12 to 5 inches in diameter.  After filling in the pond, the area became heavily saturated causing the ordering of an infiltration ditch with a 12-inch underground exit traveling over 150 yards to a stilling basin.  Other drainage points were required all over the front of the golf course.  This work required the use of a dozer and excavators.  Over $100,000 was needed to do the work.  We were able to refinance our own house in Pittsburgh along with taking out the equity from the golf course.  That along with our savings, we were able to get the job done, but not without serious repercussions.

During the three years of work, we were not able to work on the maintenance of the golf course or the equipment.  Consequently, the mowers, golf carts, roller, etc. have not been serviced and are in need of extensive repairs.
As if things were not bad enough, in 2012, fifty-five trees were uprooted all over the golf course.  Extensive damage was done to the fairways, greens and roughs.  We are able to get most of the trees off the golf course, however, a lot of work remains to be done on the fairways and greens.  These 35-50 foot high trees had stumps over 10 feet in diameter.

As it is written, just because things are bad does not mean they can’t get worse…and they did.

In 2013, a tree uprooted near the maintenance garage and fell onto the roof, causing it to cave in and damaging several pieces of equipment.  We did have insurance to cover the building, however, the insurance company refused to renew the policy.  I was lucky to get a group of Amish workers to repair the roof at a reasonable cost.  The equipment still has not been repaired, however, the building is back in shape. 


We are aggressively working to reopen the golf course on August 2015; however, we need money to do that.  We cannot borrow any more against our real estate and are now offering the following deals to the public:
