TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Shawnee County plans to shut down its Forbes Golf Course.

John Knight, parks and recreation director, said Thursday the closure is effective Jan. 1. Knight said the department lacks the money to keep the nine-hole Forbes course open.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1foaZKO ) that Knight spoke at the first of three public hearings the county is holding regarding the future of the property. He says the course is expected to see an operating loss this year of about $120,000.

The decision to close Forbes comes at a time when the parks and recreation department is seeking to cut more than $1.5 million from its budget.
