Golf Enterprise Report - from the City Parks Division

August 3, 2017 2:50 PM



I understand there has been interest in the City Parks Division's, report on the golf enterprise.  I have read the report and met with City Park's Division staff.


What I was able to gleam from reading the report and meeting with staff, is the golf enterprise is not sustainable in its current form.  The golf enterprise is meant to be self sustaining.  The City does not budget property tax payer money for operations or capital investments for the City owned golf courses.  The golf courses are maintained through golf user fees.  The report provides a lot of information for folks to be able to understand the current situation, but the report does not make a recommendation.  The City Parks Division wanted to bring light on the fact that decisions will need to be made for future of the golf courses.


There is a meeting of the Parks Commission, Golf Subcommittee next week, August 8th, at 6PM,  in the Atrium Room, at Olbrich Gardens.  The report is on their agenda.  This is a public meeting and you are welcome to attend and will be able to register to speak.


The Parks Division plans to spend the next few months gathering information from residents and working with the Parks Commission and the Golf Subcommittee to formulate a plan, for future operations of the City owned golf courses.


Your  Alder,
