Evanston golf dispute heads to court


A dispute among board members over operation of Evanston's golf course has ended up in court.

The Evanston Review reports that two members of the Evanston Wilmette Golf Association's board have filed suit against the association and its president.

In the suit, the unhappy board members accuse the association's president, John Losasso, of breaching his fiduciary duty to the association and engaging "in a pattern of self-dealing."

Directors John Richards and Gerald Murphy claim that money that should have been used to pay down water bills owed to the two municipalities instead was spent on what they called "extravagant, expensive and unnecessary" renovations to the course and that Losasso relatives were hired to do the work.

Losasso calls the suit's allegations "frivolous."
