GOLF COURSE USES
The golf course is intended for the use of playing the game of golf. The revenues generated from greens fees, cart rentals, and other user fees support the cost of maintaining these facilities. Staff has been instructed to be polite but firm when addressing individuals found on the golf course property that have not paid the appropriate user fees to play golf. In all fairness to those patrons that choose to play golf and pay for these facilities, allowing other uses on the golf course itself would interfere with their enjoyment of their round of golf and create personal liability for them if they were to strike a walker, jogger, bicyclist, or fisherman with a golf ball or golf cart.
