VERONA, WI (WTAQ) - The owner of a Madison area golf course says he'll stay open Wednesday, after he got a lot of criticism for a September 11th promotion that he dropped.
The Tumbledown Trails course in Verona had golfing discounts for the last two years on 9-11, to help remind folks of the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 people.
Monday, a newspaper ad for the golfing discounts went viral -- and golf course owner Marc Watts brought in a law enforcement officer to provide security.
He thought about shutting down the course Wednesday -- but if he did that, he said all those with negative attitudes would win.
Watts did apologize to those offended by his golf promotion -- which offered nine holes with a cart for $9.11, and 18 holes for $19.11.
