Danville Country Club got clearance for its 19th hole Tuesday when voters approved a referendum allowing liquor to be served at the golf course and restaurant.
The vote was 187-120 with 26 percent or 307 voters in the Indian Hills Christian Church precinct coming to the polls.
Turnout to hear the results was light at the Boyle County Courthouse, but Ephraim Helton, a local attorney who sits on the club's board, was there and said the club expects to have its license by February or March. He said that the club wanted to serve alcohol to its members because it would put it "on par with the nicer restaurants in town."
Some members entertain at other places in town because they can buy a drink for dinner there.
Helton said Old Bridge Golf Course is one of the places in town that competes with the club. Voters passed a similar referendum for Old Bridge, the county's public golf course, last year.
