Green fees going down at public golf course

BEEVILLE – City Council members approved a new fee schedule for the John C. Beasley Municipal Golf Course when they met Tuesday evening at City Hall. According to Rick Smith, one of the new managers at the Veterans Memorial Park facility, the idea was to increase membership and use of the nine-hole course. The new fees will be lower, in most cases, than what the course managers charged before. City Manager Jack Hamlett said he had consulted with the new managers, and they had requested a reduction in fees. “We eliminated most trail fees,” Smith said. Other fees were reduced. Smith said there will be a slight increase in cart rentals, but there will be no more problems with the cars kept at the course. Smith said all the carts have been replaced with 12 leased vehicles, and there will be a six-month turnaround. That means every six months the lessor will collect the carts at the course and replace them with new ones. For those who wish to store their own carts at the course, the fee will be $20 a month. Smith said there also will special fees for senior citizens in an effort to attract golfers over the age of 65 to start using the course again. For instance, seniors will pay only a $5 green fee while others will be charged $15 for 18 holes and $10 for nine holes. Seniors who are just walking the course will be able to play free. Golfers will have two options for the regular trail fees. There will be a $7 charge or a $28 monthly membership fee. Regular memberships will be $60 a month for single players and $85 a month for an entire household. But for those over 65, the membership will be $50 a month or $65 a month for an entire household. Another deal senior citizens will be able to take advantage of will be a “Super Senior Special.” That is for golfers over the age of 65 who can play on a weekday. For a $160 monthly fee senior golfers will be able to play nine holes and rent a cart at no charge. That deal is only good Monday through Friday and excludes weekend games. The course is closed on Tuesdays. Gary Kent is a reporter at the Bee-Picayune and can be reached at 358-2550, ext. 120, or at reporter@mySouTex.com.
