Deer Park Golf Course has a 'decent' year

Staff Writer

The municipally owned Deer Park Golf Course had a “decent year,” according to Manager Craig Schuh.
The golf course, he explained, was able to get an early start in 2015 because of the unseasonably warm weather conditions in February and March. Course revenue, however, took a hit in the summer months because of the extremely hot weather temperatures and the smoky air quality issues created by the nearby wildfires.
According to Schuh, the golf course generated more than $635,351 in revenue as compared to nearly $650,000 in 2014. Those two years were substantially greater than the three previous years that the city has owned the golf course.
Course use received a boost in use over the summer with the start of a “First Tee” program teaches youngsters character-building and life skills lessons using golf as the platform. The Deer Park program relied on an army of volunteers, including members of the golf course’s mens and womens clubs.
Schuh added that Divot’s Restaurant revenue was slightly up in 2015 as compared to the previous year.
To help offset a portion of lost revenue, Schuh, who has been the manager since purchased the golf in an auction, will raise green fees by a $1.
