Rockford man starts fundraiser to save Sinnissippi Golf Course


ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — To reduce a $1 million deficit, the Rockford Park District says it’s considering closing Sinnissippi Golf Course. Now, one resident has started a fundraiser to help keep it open.

So far, Matthew Gibbons’ GoFundMe has raised a little over $100 out of a goal of $1,500 to be used to purchase yard signs in favor of keeping Sinnissippi open.

The golf course, as well as the snow park at Alpine Hills, and Alpine Pool, could be closed. A decision is expected to be made in November.
