Hazel Dell — The owners of the Steakburger & Golf-O-Rama on Northeast Highway 99 announced last week that the place will shut down forever at precisely 4 p.m. Friday, May 30. That’ll make a 52-year run for the business, which has been beloved for its secret-sauce-slathered hamburgers and its twin, fun-doubling 18-hole minigolf courses. (But not so beloved for hole no. 11, The Volcano, with its virtually unattainable peak.) Longtime husband-and-wife owners Bob and Merilyn Condon plan to sell their 2.3-acre site to Vancouver developer Mike Jenkins of MAJ Development. The company plans to demolish the restaurant to make way for a $5 million project including four retail buildings — two of which will be drive-through restaurants. In July 2012 the Board of Clark County Commissioners honored Steakburger with an official 50th anniversary resolution, celebrating “good food, good family fun and a great place for a first date.”
