Why buy a golf course?

Posted: Wednesday, August 06, 2008

In reading Monday's edition (July 28) of the Soldotna City Council discussed the possible purchase of a privately owned golf course, I wonder how we can think of such a purchase that serves a very small group of folks. We have an ice rink that we are loosing dollars on serving a small group of the youth; for few kids have parents that can offer them hockey time and funds.

The idea of a cemetery has long been spoken of with a budget of a little over $300,000 that could serve the poor and wealthy alike.

We do not have a covered outdoor ice rink like Kenai, or a public pool like North Kenai that serves a large number of people.

We very soon shall be loosing quite a percentage of our tax base as Lowe's and Wal-Mart are completed.

Think about it. My food, transportation, energy costs have soared. Why would anyone purchase a golf course?
