Initial efforts to expand Susanville's Emerson Lake Golf Course to 18 holes began late last week.
Schroeder Logging removed trees and stumps from property off Fairway Drive, paving the way for future construction. Golf Course manager Todd Sickles said construction may start soon and the course could open in the fall of next year. "That's the best case scenario," Sickles said. "There's a lot of things that could factor into how the project is going to move along. Critical decisions will be made in the next coming weeks."
