Once again the idea of a new golf course is up for consideration during the Los Alamos County Council Capital Improvement Projects meeting. I had really hoped we had put this ridiculous idea to rest but apparently the select few wish to pursue it again.
All the benefits a new golf course would bring to the county, suggested by these select few, are purely pipe dreams. This idea is an absolute waste of county dollars. Currently rounds played are dropping and are continuing to drop. Most of the players who come out to play are ones who come out on a regular basis. Any numbers reflecting new players or increased attendance are highly inflated numbers by the golf course staff. Anyone that plays our current golf course on a regular basis can plainly see the significant drop in attendance.
I’m sure the select few who support this idea will have a response, but all they have are dreams and ideals with no sound economic, or realistic proof that such an idea would benefit Los Alamos. All they have are dreams and speculation. There’s no proof that it will even attract more golfers from out of town or out of state. They have no studies or anything else to support a huge expense such as this. A new golf course is what they would like to have and nothing more.
