City of Rochelle Requesting Proposals for Operation & Re-Development of Restaurant at Fairways Golf Course

The City of Rochelle is accepting proposals from interested parties to operate and re-develop the restaurant, bar and/or banquet facility located at the Fairways Golf Course on Route 251 in Rochelle.

The Property is a part of a 74.29-acre tract located on Illinois Route 251 near the intersection of Interstate 88 and Interstate 39, which is owned by the City and the Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District, and which includes the Fairways Golf Course. The golf course was operated as a private golf club from 1930 until 2009, and the Property was the location of the clubhouse. In 2009, the golf course became a public course, and the clubhouse became a public restaurant, bar, and banquet facility. In April of 2013, the entire property was purchased by the City and the Park District. Since then, it has operated as an 18-hole public golf course. The restaurant/bar/banquet facility was in operation until April of 2015, and has been vacant since then.

“This is a unique opportunity to bring a great new dining and banquet venue into the community,” said City Manager David Plyman.
