Elkhart Co., Ind. An Elkhart County golf course will go up for sale in October, a year after it was shut down.

On Wednesday, Elkhart's Public Works Board approved to auction off the Sims Oak Hill Golf Course.

A previous purchase bid of $250,000 was rejected earlier this summer.

City officials predict an auction will sell the facility for more money.

They plan to set the minimum bid at $650,000.

The city operated the course for nearly 50 years, but closed it in October 2012 to save money.
