County approves $2.4 million Superior National Golf Course loan

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:02pm

At the October 21 board meeting, the Cook County commissioners put their stamp of approval on a number of documents aimed at improving the Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course with a $2.4 million loan.

The process began with a positive report from Bruce Kimmel of Ehlers and Associates, the county’s bond counsel. Kimmel announced the sale results of the Series 2014A General Obligation Tax Abatement Bonds. The bids were received just prior to the Tuesday morning board meeting. Kimmel said the winning bid of the three submitted was for a 3.12 percent true interest rate, which is 1.99 percent better than what was projected. That translates into about a $164,000 annual bond service fee, a savings of about $3,000 per year compared with the original estimate, said Kimmel.

“This is an excellent rate for the county, and it is fixed,” Kimmel said. “It’s definitely a positive.”

The financing plan calls for net revenues of the Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course to pay debt service on the bonds, and the 2 percent lodging tax to be available only if those funds are insufficient.

After some discussion, the board approved and signed off on three resolutions setting the bonding process in motion.

The improvement plans for Superior National include the acquisition of four acres of land, and renovation of 18 of the existing holes (nine holes on the Canyon Course and nine holes on the River Course).
