Fema golf courses are ‘fraudulent’ to residents
A federal judge has issued an injunction barring a lawsuit from a Minnesota golf course that said its greens are a “fraudulently constructed” golf course.
In an opinion issued Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Michael W. Hodge said the lawsuit filed by the golf course’s owner and developer is “clearly not based on the merits” of the case.
“This case is not based upon the merits,” he wrote in the opinion.
The golf course in Ponderosa, Minn., has more than 8,000 golf holes and is owned by the nonprofit group Friends of Ponderos.
The lawsuit alleges the golf courses’ greens are unsafe because they are too high.
It also alleges that the golf facilities are deceptive in that the courses do not follow the state’s green standards and do not require any permits for use.
The Minnesota golf association said it is pleased with the ruling.
