FAA runs afoul of local golfers

HALEYVILLE - The Federal Aviation Authority has claimed in a letter, confirming research of deeds and easements, that a portion of property of the Haleyville Country Club has encroached on Posey Field Airport property and thus a fence currently being constructed through FAA guidelines is taking up two holes on the golf course.

The fence project is causing outrage from the country club, claiming a portion of their property is being violated.

“About two weeks ago, they came and told us they were going to do it,” noted Kyle Miller, president of the Haleyville Country Club, a private member-owned organization that operates through memberships.

“We heard that they were going to do it for a year or so,” Miller noted. “We’re going to lose two holes on the golf course.” Those two holes on the golf course are 10 and 11, he noted.

“We’re going to have to figure out where we can build two holes at, and we don’t have the money for it really,” Miller pointed out.
