With similar facilities facing a crossroads, Golf Country owner Rob Nekoroski moved from the north shore to Easton to revitalize a piece of the family business.
Easton's Golf Country is one of the few remaining facilities of its kind in the area.

"We got hit hard, so we’re really making a commitment to build it up," he said. Just this year, Nekoroski said his family has put $30,000…
