The Maynard Golf Club Reuse Committee was chartered with assessing the feasibility of alternatives to the land and resources of the Maynard Golf Course (formerly the Maynard Country Club). A series of public forums throughout the assessment process afforded all residents the opportunity to offer opinions and provide input on how you feel the property can be best utilized. Please feel free to make use of our feedback form at the bottom of this page to provide input to the committee.
The Maynard Golf Club Re-Use Committee is no longer active. See our final report below.
