City to recruit PGA professional instead of manager

By Ken Anderson

News Correspondent

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.
