LEXINGTON, Ky. -- – A plan to create a separate fund to track revenues and spending for public golf in Lexington is on hold.
The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council decided not to form what's called an enterprise fund' for golf. Council member Tom Blues believes such a fund might hurt public golf in Fayette County.
"I guess we'd be authorizing them to close some golf courses to lay off employees to make other cuts and adjustments."
Council member Jay McChord, a proponent of a golf fund, says such a fund would help gather accurate information to assess public and private golf conditions. Some private operators say government funded course have an unfair advantage.
