MAIDEN — February marked a major turning point for one local 18-hole golf club.
Early morning on Feb. 22, neighbors called 9-1-1 after hearing an explosion and seeing flames at Glen Oaks Golf Club in Maiden.
The fire originated in the kitchen of the clubhouse and spread throughout the building, leaving only the facade standing in the ashes.
Since then, Glen Oaks has been operating out of mobile units to continue their business.
