Cypress Head Golf Course Restaurant closure
PORT ORANGE, FL –“The Tavern at Cypress Head”, the privately-operated restaurant serving the City-owned Cypress Head Golf Course, unexpectedly closed its doors Sunday, August 6th.
In an email to the City one of the managers, Tom Smith, indicated lost revenue as the main reason they decided to close The Tavern.
The Tavern has been in operation for the past 21 months after being awarded the competitively-solicited contract from the city. Previously, Kemper Sports, the Golf Course Manager for the city, had operated the food and beverage operations at the golf course.
“We will do a complete inventory of the facility and clean up quickly to get the restaurant back in working order. In the meantime, we are investigating some short-term options to feed the golfers and ensure all the events are covered from a food service standpoint,” said Susan Lovallo, Parks and Recreation Director. “This is a setback for the city golf course but we can work through it and get back in step.” The Cypress Head Golf Course remains open to the public and no drop in attendance is anticipated.
