O’Donnell believes citizens should vote on golf course

Patricia W. Nolen

Dear Editor,

On Oct. 29, the Aspen Times ran an article headlined, “Too many courses, too few golfers, some say.” According to the Golf Profit-Builders, a consortium of golf industry pros that compiles analytical data, “the sport is losing as many golfers as it attracts each year.”

According to Breckenridge golf pro Enrol Miller, “The Breck course took in $29,000 less than last year and will fall $45,000 short of budget. Town officials also anticipate having to contribute about $200,000 toward the $500,000 annual debt on the new nine holes at the course next year.”

In the face of this it seems rather foolish for Glenwood Springs to go ahead with plans for a multi-million dollar golf course, especially when the cost estimate continues to rise.

Joe O’Donnell believes the citizens here should vote on this question. So do I. Joe should be elected to the City Council.
