Does the city need to close a golf course, or is this about making money? If so, then the Golf Division director should have his pay cut and staff reduce accordingly.
Before any courses are shut down, including the Jordan River Par 3, the Golf Division director should get out of his office and visit all courses, especially on weekends to see how they are playing.
When I started golfing 40 plus years ago, you knew who the golf pro was. I play the city courses now and have no idea who they are. They need to be there on the weekend when courses are the busiest, talking to the golfers.
If each course ran the snack bar and put out the beverage cart on weekends, they would make money.
How about working on customer service first to make everyone’s golf round enjoyable.
Please play appropriate tees and walk.
