OPINION: Some suggestions for Madison`s public golf courses

Dear Editor: I read with great interest the story on the deficiencies of the four Madison municipal golf courses, which together lost close to a million dollars in 2019. Considering the decreasing interest in golf as a participatory sport overall, I have some suggestions as to the future of the public courses.

1. Sell Yahara Hills to the Ho-Chunk Nation, who could rebuild it and add it as an attraction to their casino.

2. Sell Monona Golf Course to developers...   ...more

Ken Notes: I like these ideas! I suggest at the very lease we lease our courses for $1 each to private concerns at let them run them at a profit or loss.
