    It all began Jan. 1, 2010, when the pro shop received a call from the operators of the course, Maples Golf Management, co-owners of the course with CTC Brick Landing LLC. They ordered the pro to close the golf course immediately and lock the building. If anyone was playing the course, they were to be stopped and given a refund. Furthermore, a sign was to be placed on the door saying the golf course and clubhouse are closed for the month of January.
