The Ann Arbor Chronicle is reporting that the embattled Washtenaw Country Club may have found a savior in the Berger Family, owners of the Polo Fields golf club just outside Ann Arbor. The Bergers would acquire the club by paying off $900,000 of the $1.9 million owed
Washtenaw currently is unable to pay its $1.9 million debt due to declining membership, mostly stemming from renovations a decade ago.
If this deal doesn’t go through, the club would close in January. Washtenaw Country Club was founded in 1899, and is the second oldest in Michigan.
