    It all began Jan. 1, 2010, when the pro shop received a call from the operators of the course, Maples Golf Management, co-owners of the course with CTC Brick Landing LLC. They ordered the pro to close the golf course immediately and lock the building. If anyone was playing the course, they were to be stopped and given a refund.
