A smoke shop at the popular Washington DC golf course has been closed for nearly two years due to smoke.
Owner Michael Cimini said the shop closed because the smoke could pose a health risk to patrons.
The shop closed at about 2:30 p.m.
Tuesday, and he says it’s closed for good.
Cimini told the Washington Post that he didn’t have the money to buy a new one for the course.
The smoke shop was built by Ciminis brother in 1988 and has been in the area for decades.
Ciminos sister and business partner, Jennifer Mazzocato, says she doesn’t think the smoke shop will reopen.
“I don’t think it’s going to reopen, and I don’t believe it will reopen, either,” Mazzo says.
“We’ll just have to figure out how to keep doing this.”
The Washington Golf Club was opened in 1972 and opened its first course on January 17, 2019.
It opened a second course in 2018 and a third in 2021.
