Market year-round golf at Cedar Hill

Re: Cedar Hill golf struggles to hit par (News, Aug. 9)

The recent article of the travails of Cedar Hill Golf Course leaves me a tad perplexed.

One wonders when certain players complain about the parameters of their ability to play when the average price is lower than other available courses.

The cost of available refreshment was not kept up by usage and the use of unionized employees, a surefire plan for the failure that evolved.

The idea of foreign players taking advantage of virtual year-round availability and low cost seems to be lost to the administration staff.

I am reminded of a golf course that was built in Hawaii and had its first five years of tee times reserved for non-resident usage, as I recall. Japanese golfers would see the benefit of low cost and cheap airfare to play at all times of the year compared to their high costs.

The same could be said for central Canadian residents who might appreciate the idea of cheap golf in a Canadian province all year. An arrangement with Japanese and Canadian travel companies might be a sure guarantee of extra income for the course.
