Kudos On Golf

Congratulations on your September 2010 issue and especially your cover and two stories about golf. Golf is the second largest revenue source for municipalities with golf courses behind only taxes. We are very pleased your articles address the challenging economic times and offer suggestions on how a golf course might address these current issues and remain profitable. Thanks for your support of the golf industry.
