2009 Golf Master Plan Overview
In 2006 the City Council adopted Golf Financial Policies (Resolution 30926). Those policies call for golf revenues to be used to support operations and maintenance of the courses, transfer 3.5% of gross revenue to the Park fund to support overhead costs (accounting, planning management, etc.), and the remainder to be set aside for golf capital improvements. Those policies indicate a willingness to consider improvements that could be debt financed if revenues would be available to pay off the debt. The Master Plan provides project recommendations for a capital bond measure for funding improvements over 20 years. Capital Improvements will be implemented in a phased 5-6 year time frame, commencing in 2010. The total cost of the full package of Capital Improvements, 4B Lite, is $20,269,519.

The Master Plan’s top six priorities are:

  1. Perimeter trails around each golf course
  2. Clubhouse renovations
  3. Conversion from gas carts to electric carts & barns
  4. Tee-to-green cart paths
  5. Driving range additions and expansions
  6. Possible maintenance facility renovations

The draft Golf Master Plan was presented to the Park Board on February 12, 2009. The draft Financial Plan and staff recommendations were presented on March 12, 2009. A public hearing was held at the April 9, 2009 meeting and staff presented a short update on financial plan revisions based upon feedback from the previous Board briefing. Park Board recommendations followed on April 23, 2009.

The Park Board recommended moving forward with Option 4B, subject to Executive recommendation.

Public Involvement Process:
The public involvement process includes working directly with the department’s Golf Steering Committee, conducting public open houses, and outreach to the general public. The staff and consultant team worked with the Golf Steering Committee to ensure that the interests of the golfing community are met. Because the Committee is composed of advocates for each of the four courses, committee members provided in-depth course-specific input; at the same time, the Committee allowed members to review and provide input on the emerging proposals as a group, assisting the team in equitably balancing the needs and priorities city wide.

The team hosted several open houses, one at each course, to present the draft concepts, options and proposals. Community concerns included safety and security, parking and traffic, appearance of course edges, clubhouse rehabilitation or replacement, new driving ranges and joint use of clubhouses. Outreach included mailers to all zip code routes surrounding each golf course, e-mail notification and distribution through the Department of Neighborhoods Service Centers, District Councils, Parks Community Centers and advisory councils, along with press releases in all the neighborhood publications. The open houses were scheduled for the first week in December 2008, immediately prior to the preparation of draft recommendations.
