SUBJECT:
Title
Discuss and consider approval of the first reading of an ordinance revising Chapter 86-91 of the Code of Ordinances to amend fees at the Landa Park Golf Course.

Body
BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:
The current fees for the Landa Park Golf Course have been in effect since the post renovation re-opening in 2014.

Based on a study completed by Mr. Jim Keegan, Golf Convergence, green fees and memberships are recommended to be raised slightly (average 5% increase). Also recommended is the elimination of the "Go Play Card" and implementing a single rate for all players. It is believed that by offering one single rate, the fee structure will be less confusing to the public and will attract additional players from the region.

Proposed fees are as follows (includes cart unless noted otherwise)
