Burley considers a raise in golf course fees
BURLEY (AP) - Officials in the south-central Idaho city of Burley are considering raising greens fees at the city's golf course so it isn't such a financial drain on the town's budget.
Councilman Jay Lenkersdorfer at a council meeting last week said it's not fair for taxpayers to subsidize the golf course, The Times-News reported.
Officials are looking at raising the cost of daily and season passes. The course lost more than $100,000 last year.
Councilman Casey Andersen said the course needs to see 4,000 more rounds of golf per year.
The council plans to discuss the greens fees increases on Jan. 2.
