Teeing up the ideas

Baker City CPA Bruce Nichols asked the City Council Tuesday to consider having an existing nonprofit, City Golf Club, manage the city-owned Quail Ridge Golf Course.

Councilors should discuss Nichols’ idea.

And any other plausible solution that comes to them in the wake of Seven Iron Inc.’s decision to not renew its  management contract.

A viable golf course helps the local economy.

Equally important, the city needs annual lease payments from a course manager to pay off the debt it piled up several years ago as a result of building the back nine holes (despite voters rejecting a tax levy) and  from annual operating losses at the course.

This also might be the right time to revive an old idea — selling the 15 acres the city owns adjacent to the course.
