Patch Decision Put Off

Augusta commissioners slow the play for the patch golf course.

Commissioners taking no action on a proposal to partner with First Tee of Augusta to run the city golf course.

One big concern is cost.

the city would pay for a two million dollar renovation of the course, and be responsible for all losses.

But if the course made money profits would be split 50-50 with first tee.

“I think it's a great thing to partner with First Tee because that's such a good program we do not have the money in our budget for that first conversation we've been having about the partnership with First tee, we don't have it in the budget right now,” says Commissioner Mary Davis.

Commissioners voted to send the issue back to their July 8th committee meeting for more discussion on the costs of teaming up with first tee.
