City of North Platte will accept bids to buy or lease Iron Eagle Golf Course through Oct. 13

Citizens concerned Iron Eagle drains city funds

Gary Hunt searches for his golf ball as Martin Enderle moves their cart along the fairway of hole No. 5 at Iron Eagle Golf Course in North Platte. The 25-year-old public golf course's ownership remained unsettled as 2019 ended, despite public debates in June and September.

The city of North Platte will accept bids to buy or lease Iron Eagle Golf Course online through 2 p.m. Oct. 13, according to a notice on the city’s website.

The deadline date is two weeks later than the Sept. 29 date in the city’s draft “request for proposal” presented to the City Council Sept. 1.

City Administrator Matthew Kibbon said the city switched to the mid-October date based on a question at that meeting whether the original four-week bidding window was too short.

Would-be bidders to buy Iron Eagle outright, seek a lease-purchase agreement or simply lease the golf course may download the RFP and associated documents online at www.ci.north-platte.ne.us/request-for-proposals-golf-course.

The notice says proposals will be accepted only through the Public Purchase website (publicpurchase.com).
