Golf course audit finds nothing wrong, but revenue remains a challenge

An audit made public today indicates the Augusta Municipal Golf Course is not losing money in any suspicious ways, but the report also offered little to explain how the  public golf operation, known as the "Patch," could make receipts equal to expenditures.

 Last year, the course made approximately $421,000, but spent about $519,000, auditor J.T. Cosnahan told members of a City Commission study committee.

 It's the only city recreation facility budgeted in an enterprise fund, meaning it can't operate in the red, Commissioner Bill Lockett said.

 With the audit completed, Lockett sent committee members out to look for other ways to balance the Patch's books.

Give the patch and the nearby

Give the patch and the nearby Daniel Field airport to ASU. Their are too many golf courses in Augusta. Demolished the Daniel Field airport and rebuild it near Augusta Regional Airport..

The city of Augusta needs ASU to be the size of Georgia State or Georgia Southern...

I said near the Augusta

I said near the Augusta Regional airport.... Miles apart can still be near something. The current DF airport is small and out of place. The new DF airport would spur growth in a area of South Augusta. The new ASU building's would spur growth all along Wrightsboro rd/Damascus rd/Highland Ave..

Oh no, here we go again. We

Oh no, here we go again. We gotta keep ASU out of the Highland Park area because of all the growth and people it would bring. It's already congested enough around here. (attempt at being funny)
