In the market to buy a golf course?

An 18-hole golf course in southern Illinois could be yours for $750,000.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the family of Joseph Trover is selling the Yorktown Golf Course in Belleville.

They have owned the 38-acre property since 1992 and hope to keep it a golf course. Trover says he is willing to come down on the price because a golf course is good for the community and people.
