Changes Coming to Lincoln Golf Courses
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 16, 2013 ) San Diego, CA -- An $18,000 study by the National Golf Foundation has already hypothetically netted returns for the Lincoln city golf program, in which the survey showed that students and women are not a significant portion of city golfers. Senior men make up almost 45 percent of all play on the four full-size Lincoln city courses: Holmes, Mahoney, Pioneers and Highlands.
In an effort to bring in younger golfers, college students will be able to purchase a $70-a-month pass for weekdays and weekends after 1pm. The city will also seek new revenue sources and possible changes in the way the Lincoln city courses are administered and run The city golf program, paid for exclusively by golfers for more than 40 years, ran into significant debt with the city general fund the past 10 years.
As a result, two golf pros were not rehired, a golf administrator was let go in the past year and a half, and an annual debt of over $400,000 to pay off the building of the Highlands course was completed last year.
The golf committee of the city Parks and Recreation Department (PRD) also addressed concerns about the new Holmes Golf Course clubhouse and its potential for revenue. Worth $1.5 million, the clubhouse, paid for by a golfer surcharge and set to open later this month, is missing some key revenue-producing items. These include a full-service kitchen, cart security, partitions for the 5,900-square-foot room and easy access from the parking lot. The building back also faces the golfers as they enter the course, which the Parks and Recreation Department find inconvenient and hazardous.
The golf committee says it wants to hire volunteers to complete the landscaping around the new clubhouse to spruce up the scenery and save money on landscaping services.
