With all the talk of the city raising user fees for Parks and Recreation, has there been any talk of raising fees at Eagle Bend Golf Course? How much of the budget is used on the maintenance and the use of Eagle Bend?
“We constantly review our fees at Eagle Bend against the state, regional and national trends,” said Ernie Shaw, interim parks and rec director. “We evaluate our course and compare to courses we consider our competition and try to set our fees so they are competitive with the others around the area.”
According to Shaw, Eagle Bend produced $918,421 in revenue in 2008 with operating-maintenance expenses of $816,029.
