Bloomington: Is it time to ditch a golf course?

by:  Diane Benjamin

The monthly Bloomington City Manager’s report for January it on-line:  http://www.cityblm.org/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=6417

One interesting graph shows the number of golf rounds played at the 3 City owned golf courses.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a chart without a TOTALS column, unless there is something to hide.  I added my own totals to the chart for 9 months, this fiscal year only shows numbers through January, so in order to compare years, the totals are all for May-January

golf2Playing golf in Bloomington – at least at the City owned courses –  is losing interest.  The City needs money.  They need to look turning one of them over to the private sector for redevelopment.  Here’s some Quality of Life the City can quit subsidizing.
