The Beckley City Council approved the purchase of the local county club Black Knight on Tuesday March 27, 2018. The Country Club closed their doors back in December 2017.
Mayor Rob Rappold said they are in talks with many experts on how to make the overall experience for visitors better than before.
Mayor Rappold also stated, “We talked to our caterers, we would love to be open for lunch by Mother’s Day. Any how that’s a big restaurant day, brunch day, what have you. That’s kind of a soft target date. We would love to be able to do that. We have a lot of work to do to reach that, but we think we can do it.”
Mayor Rappold added that they booked a couple of reunions and wedding receptions already. He also said he hopes this helps the city with tourism in the future.
