Correction to Cronkite News story on closing golf courses

A Nov. 13 Cronkite News story on closing golf courses referred erroneously reported the golf course acreage that the Wigwam has proposed converting to housing. After initially proposing about 40 acres, an amended plan proposed 7 acres. The story erroneously reported the number of golf courses at the Wigwam. There are three. The story referred incorrectly to the terms of Arizona’s rights to Colorado River water versus those of California as articulated by Dara Wald, a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Policy Informatics at Arizona State University. This version also clarifies how homebuilder PulteGroup Inc. is seeking to change deed restrictions so homes can be built on what has been a golf course.
