Changes Minimal to Money-Losing Three Crowns Golf Course
The board that oversees the development of the former Amoco refinery property is about to change its relationship with its largest tenant.
The Amoco Reuse Agreement Joint Powers Board Chairman Bryce Row says the board will expand its presence with the Three Crowns Golf Course.
The board is expecting to subsidize the golf course with $368,000 this year, Row said.
The golf course opened a decade ago, and was supposed to break even after a few years.
That never happened.
Three crowns has lost nearly five million dollars since then.
A Joint Powers Board task force set up a year ago to find a way to stem those losses suggested a closer relationship with the course and its manager OB Sports of Scottsdale, Ariz.
But he board is not planning any changes to its budget for now in the way it deals with three crowns.
