The city is accepting bids from contractors for a $7.7-million golf course scheduled to begin construction in November. The City Council on Tuesday approved naming the golf course Black Gold. The 18-hole championship course, located at the base of the Chino foothills, is scheduled to be finished in two years. The council wants to award the contract by Sept. 21. The golf course is expected to generate more than $1 million in annual revenue for the city. The 200-acre site was donated to the city by Shell Oil Co. Shell is developing a 879-acre, 2,000-house project adjacent to the course.
