The City of Dayton is auctioning golf carts, golf course components, landscaping equipment and commercial kitchen equipment after it permanently closed two of its three golf courses.

Items up for grab include 100 Yamaha golf carts of varying ages, conditions and colors, granite tee marker holes, golf bag stands, flags, golf cups, a 12-foot-tall gazebo, commercial lawnmowers, landscaping tools, bar equipment, picnic tables, and park banches, according to a release issued Tuesday evening from the city.

The auction is online at www.govdeals.com/cityofdaytonohio. Bidders can complete a free registration at www.govdeals.com/register.

In May, the city announced the permanent closure of Kitty Hawk and Madden Golf Centers.

Several auction clusters will go live, continuing well into July. Bidding is open to anyone with an interest, including businesses, vendors, contractors, restauranteurs, homeowners and collectors.

“Lots of items are up for auction, from course supplies to memorabilia. Be sure to check back often so you don’t miss a great find,” Kelly Pressel, City of Dayton Golf Division manager stated in the release.
