Northwest Iowa — The state’s Enhance Iowa Board has awarded grants in northwest Iowa that are a portion of $1.8 million worth of grants to help finance community projects.

The Enhance Iowa Board has awarded the town of Marcus a $300,000 grant for a facility that will include a golf course clubhouse, a recreation center, a restaurant and event venue as well as an area for virtual sports.

A half-a-million-dollar grant has also been awarded toward improvements around West Okoboji’s Terrace Park Beach, which has a public swimming area in the lake, and the nearby Alex Danborn Memorial Park.
