Payson Golf Club owner hopes to spur local economy |
Bob Jackson, owner of the Payson Golf Club, has big plans to create a destination resort at the end of Main Street — starting with the soft opening of a new restaurant on Sept. 21.
Jackson is known for hosting fundraising events and raising money for local causes.
But he has plans to do much more.
“The long-term goal is to be and operate as a community place,” he told the members of the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce recently.
Jackson came to the August breakfast to explain his five-year plan for improving the golf club, 1504 W. Country Club Lane, to spur the local economy with jobs and sales tax, starting with the addition of the restaurant for chef Randy Ortega.
“We have a team out there. This team is getting things done,” said Jackson.
