It's a big "no thank you" to Golf Courses in Panther Habitat

A bill only just introduced last week to allow 5 new golf courses be built
in State Parks and Panther Habitat are all done, almost before they began.
The Bill introduced by Florida Republicans Rooney and Thrasher would have put these golf courses in Panther Habitat and nearly certainly have finished off the already beleaguered Panther.
The idea for the new courses according to Nicklaus, who would have designed and built them, was endorsed by Governor Scott when the two met to discuss ways to increase tourism.
We only have 1,000 plus Golf Courses in Florida right now, making us number one in the country.
If only our Panther numbers were that high!
Can you hear the sighs of relief from the Panthers and Wildlife Officials?
