City golf courses are necessary as it is affordable for low income families and seniors to play a round that they can afford.
Courses like Richmond Green have a lot of families, including young children taking advantage of an east round of golf. It encourages young children to learn the game. In addition a lot of seniors play these types of courses,
There are other areas the city can reduce their spending on. The courses should not be in it for profits, rather a place like parks where the community can utilize them. What’s next, shut down all city parks and swimming pools. Rather increase our property taxes by a couple of dollars and I am confident no one would even notice it, nor complain.
Richmond Green land cannot be be used for anything but a golf course, as there are citywpipinh under ground.
If closed , there will be yearly
Maintenance that will still cost tax payers as the land cannot sit idle. Cut back your ruthless spending in other areas , not on our affordable recreation!!!
