Frequent golfers at the Casper Golf Course may have to pay higher season pass and greens fees next year.

Under the draft resolution presented to Casper City Council at its Tuesday work session, adult full-season passes would increase $35 to $535 and half-season passes would increase $25 to $350.

Under the proposal, greens fees would also see a $2 across-the-board increase.

Casper leisure services director Doug Follick says, after several improvements at the golf course in recent years, the increases are needed.

“We’re putting a lot of capital improvements into the golf course this last year and for next season as well,” Follick said. “The golf course is not operating at a profit, so we try to keep our loss to a minimum, and yet, we want to keep our rates reasonable.”

Follick says fees for golfers under the age of 18 would not increase. He also says there’s no plan to raise fees for golf cart usage.
