|City to recruit PGA professional instead of manager|
By Ken Anderson
The Eagle River City Council spent considerable time last week making decisions concerning the municipal golf course, including hiring a certified Professional Golf Association (PGA) pro, 2013 fees, pro shop management and a marketing plan to include a bid for the Channel 7 Open golf tournament.
Course superintendent and manager Ken Smith supported the idea of hiring a PGA pro. He described to the council what makes up the course’s four-star rating and the impact it may have if lowered.
“One reason we get a four- star rating is the whole package we have that includes not only the course itself, but the management, pro shop, club house, and people we employ,” said Smith.
