Golf fee hike is obscene

Dear Editor:

Congratulations to the city leaders for questioning the fee schedules for 2011.

A nearly 30 percent fee hike for the golf “gold” pass is obscene. My guess is that, aside from parking fees, the golf course is the only amenity that comes close to showing positive revenue for the city.

A 3 percent increase is not unreasonable, but you have to look at the amenities that don’t carry themselves.
