  1. Another cash grab by the Parks Board. One would think when you
    have a dedicated group of supporters for your business & you are making record profits you would maintain the rates for your services/products at the same level or possibly reduce the costs slightly. Perhaps their agenda is to increase the rates to a level that the average person or retiree can’t afford to play & then when revenues drop it will be the perfect excuse to sell off the golf course lands to the highest bidder. What a sad excuse for a Parks Board.
