Weatherwax Golf Course in Middletown, Ohio and Vista Verde Golf Club in Liberty Township, Ohio both closed last year, and neighboring Twin Run Golf Course is lowering its rates as incentive for players to check out the course. The city of Hamilton has also purchased equipment from the shuttered properties to benefit both Twin Run and Potter’s Park Golf Course.
Adam Helms, General Manager of Twin Run Golf Course and Potter’s Park Golf course, has reported that rounds at both properties are up nearly 10% this year, with combined revenues up 3.2% from 2014. Rather than raising prices, Helms said the golf course will “stick to our $25 to $35 [per round], and hope you buy some beer.”
The municipal Potter’s Park and Twin Run golf courses brought in $56,762 in profits in 2014, while 2013 saw a deficit of $60,000, a success attributed to the new General Manager’s efforts to establish a point-of-sale system, track rounds, and build a marketing database.
