The increases, ranging from 50 cents to $1, is expected to bring in $50,000 of additional revenue.
City council members approved the fee increases this week. Increases were proposed by the KickingBird Golf Advisory Board after comparing Edmond’s prices to those at nearby golf courses.
The last increase was in spring 2008.
Officials have identified over $45,000 in needed improvements.
“We need to increase rates to replace aging assets, cover increases in operational expenses and make capital improvements,” said Brian Soerensen, head PGA professional at KickingBird. “It is our business philosophy to operate as close to break-even as possible so the general fund and park tax fund is not used for a subsidy.
“These funds have been used in the past to help balance our budget, and we realize with state tax revenue decreasing we need to become less dependent on subsidies.”
