BREC golf report to be released Tuesday
BATON ROUGE - Tuesday, BREC will discuss its plan for reorganizing its golf operation.
A WBRZ report earlier in 2014 found there has been a 20 percent drop in rounds since 2010. The number of rounds peaked in 2009, with 156,000.
To figure out a strategy, BREC hired the National Golf Foundation to visit and evaluate all seven courses and sign off on all their golf-related programs. Results will be released Tuesday.
Sources said the NGF is expected to suggest BREC run golf courses as a business, instead of like a park and added the study said BREC "probably [has] too much golf."
There are seven courses in the public park system. The report is just a recommendation from golf experts and BREC does not have to do anything.
Citizens can join the discussion on Tuesday at the BREC building on Florida Boulevard. It starts at 6 p.m.
