The Wichita city council has agreed to look at the possibility of letting private companies manage the city's 5 golf courses. The council had a workshop meeting Tuesday and heard a report from the Golf Advisory Committee. Our news partners at KWCH Channel 12 are reporting that the council agreed to allow the committee to go out for bids from private firms that would be interested in running the courses.
The advisory committee and the city council will make the final decision later on whether to privatize the courses.
The council gave approval earlier this year to spending just over $1 million to make needed improvements at the courses, including the repair of a hail-damaged roof at the L.W. Clapp Golf Course. The plan also calls for repairs and resurfacing for the parking lots at all 5 courses.
