A potential new management company for Peoria Park District golf courses addressed community

During the district's board meeting Wednesday night.

PEORIA - Local leaders addressed the public's comments during Peoria Park District's board meeting tonight. Golf courses in Peoria could be coming under new management. Currently the district manages the courses, but due to financial issues they're considering hiring Golf Visions, a privately owned firm to manage the courses. The district is early into this process, and haven't signed a contract or determined if they will choose this option. If they do, the district would determine the prices and fees, but Golf Visions would manage the courses and its employees. One attendee said he's unsure if hiring outside management would increase sales for the courses. 

"Maybe they can increase revenue but it looks like a real tough equation to somehow increase revenue and increase rounds when the reason people left was that the prices were going too high, by raising the rates" said Ed Lamoureux, an avid golfer.

If the board chooses to pursue golf visions, board members said there would be a clause in the contract allowing them to terminate the agreement if they feel it isn't working out.
