The Hadley Township Board approved a Class C liquor license for Hadley Acres Golf and Country Club last week, which allows liquor by the glass. The change will open up new opportunities for the golf course, and it's a first for the township. The golf course has had a license to sell beer and wine, but the community has turned down other license requests to sell liquor by the glass, including a bar, The golf course opened in 1971, and now can compete on an even playing field with other local golf courses.

This is a first for the township. Hadley Acres expects to get state approval of the license to begin selling by early summer.
