An ad hoc citizens' golf committee established by the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board will be holding a series of public meetings over the next several weeks to discuss options for the city's golf program in light of the ongoing deficit of its golf courses.
The committee will report its findings to the Parks and Recreation Board, which eventually will forward a recommendation to the Phoenix City Council for formal consideration and action. All ad hoc committee meetings begin at 6 p.m. and will feature a set presentation of financial and operational information on Phoenix golf courses and the local golf market, after which visitors will be able to ask questions and submit comments.
