Overton Golf Course and others closing three days a week

The city just announced that six public golf courses will close three days a week to save revenue. Herenton had previously announced a plan to permanently close several, and this keeps them all open, but this money saving plan will be a loss to all of the seniors and families who depend on Overton as an affordable way to get out, get some exercise, see some friends, and play a round of golf. The Audubon and Galloway courses will remain open every day.

The CA article is here.

Hopefully a new mayor can get a better grip on the city budget and not cut parks and public amentities that draw people to the city and make it a good place to live.

Email Parks director Cindy Buchanan to let her know if you dislike this move. Your letters give her the clout to fight for our courses.
