It’s going to cost golfers a few extra dollars more to play 18 holes at the Logan River Golf course this year.
The greens fee rate increase was proposed as a resolution to Logan City Council members Tuesday night.
The golf course loses money each year, so the proposed boost in fees is part of a strategy to help reduce a $150,000-a-year subsidy from city tax payers.
Golfers currently pay $15 for a regular 9-hole greens fee. The proposal would increase that fee by $1 per 9-holes, $2 per 18-holes.
Seniors and juniors will also be charged an extra dollar per 9-holes.
In addition to the hike in the greens fee, the cost of a punch pass, season pass and driving range will also rise.
“This is a measured approach,” according to Russ Akina, Director of Logan Parks and Recreation. “We are looking to increase our Tournament Room use at the club house and also looking at the way we have our concession contract and services set up. We want to be able to explore other opportunities there to help on the revenue side of that for the golf course.”
The city is hoping the new greens fee structure will raise more than $56,000 a year in revenue.
A public hearing on the proposed increase will be held on March 5th.
If approved by the council, the increase in fees will be effective April 1, 2019.
