Funding for repair and replacement projects at L.C.G. Courses
Lincoln City Golf daily fees and membership fees have been increased to provide funding for needed golf facility repair and replacement projects. It is anticipated that these fee increases will generate about $130,000 during the 2014 season. An analysis of funding needed to keep golf facilities in good condition indicates that about $650,000 will be needed annually for repair and replacement projects. Incremental golf fee increases are anticipated over the next four years to achieve the needed funding level. Replacement of aged irrigation systems is a primary goal of the golf repair and replacement program. Download the six-year plan for Lincoln City Golf repair and replacement projects here:
