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.
