The Jefferson city council at its regular meeting Jan. 13 approved the early termination of a two year lease agreement with Tee to Greene Properties LLC for management of the Jefferson Community Golf Course. The termination was mutually agreeable to both parties.
The city council has decided that rather than looking for another person or group to manage the city-owned course, the city will take on the responsibility. Greene County Community Center, which is operated by the city’s park and recreation department is a model, although golf course management will not fall under JPRD.
Membership rates and daily fees for 2014 were approved by the council at the Jan. 13 meeting. Membership rates will be $475 for a family, $325 for an individual, $290 for an individual age 65 or older, and $100 for an individual 18 or younger or a fulltime college student.
A person who pays for memberships to both the Jefferson Community Golf Course and the Greene County Community Center will receive a punch pass for a total of 25 visits to either facility or the Jefferson municipal swimming pool. As an incentive to draw people from the surrounding area, golfers who have a membership at another golf course and golfers who reside outside of Greene County will receive a 25 percent discount.
The council also approved providing an individual membership to all fulltime city employees at no charge. Fulltime city employees also receive an individual membership to the Community Center. Employees can add their family to the membership by paying the difference in cost.
Daily rates were also set as follows: nine holes, $12, or all day play, $20; and cart rental, nine holes, $10, or all day, $20.
