"On November 5, 2018, the City Commission voted to withdraw the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the redevelopment of the municipal golf course, which now allows the City to accept unsolicited bids from potential developers that meet the requirements of the original RFP. After 30-days, we’ll report back to the City Commission. Our priority is ensuring that, at the end of the day, this process will result in a golf course and amenities that meet our residents’ needs and that they can be proud of. We look forward to receiving these new proposals by January 14, 2019 by 4PM to the Procurement Department."
Anyone interested in submitting a proposal or inquiry may call City of West Palm Beach Procurement Director, Frank Hayden at (561) 822-2102. A link to the previous RFP and additional criteria from the Golf Advisory Committee : Click here
