Letter to the editor: Time to improve Ponderosa Golf Course
August 1, 2017
The Ponderosa Golf Course, which is maintained by the parks and recreation department, is an excellent addition to the Truckee community.
This course is also a cash cow for the parks and recreation department, and is in need of real golf course maintenance. Those who do maintain it know how to mow lawns, but have no idea how to take care of greens and fairways. This course is in need of a golf course superintendent who knows how to take care of a golf course.
The softball fields in Truckee, which are also maintained by the parks and recreation department, are fantastic and in immaculate condition. It's time the parks and recreation department steps up, spends some needed money, and makes
Ponderosa the great course it can be.
Question: Do any of the board members of parks and rec actually play golf or use this course? I would think not. This course is one of the best-kept secrets in the Sierra. Let's improve it. Fore!
