I absolutely love golf and love the public golf courses in the city of Duluth. I have to respond to the latest article by Jon Nowacki from the Duluth News Tribune, about two public golf courses in Duluth, Lester Park Golf Course and Enger Park Golf Course.
There has to be a better way than selling the golf course to solve the problem. It’s easy for the city councilors to make the citizens pay more for the terrible roads, all they have to do is vote on it. Or if the city wants us to pay for street lights all they do is vote on it. They are to eager to raise our taxes to fix the cities problems which seems like a cop out. Fix this problem with some hard work for once.
Why exactly are the golf courses losing money? I think Schintz brings up a lot of great points. Alcohol, time, and bad weather at the start of the last two seasons sure don’t help the courses to generate revenue. Maybe the city should fix these problems first or share with us what they have tried to fix the problem. If a business is failing you try and fix it with a new plan, you can’t keep doing the same thing that is losing money. City councilors please tell us what you are doing to solve the golf course problem in Duluth. Is anything changing?
Some times the way this city chooses to use it’s resources (our tax dollars) drives me crazy. C’mon mayor and city councilors.
