Arizona golf courses need to support local golfers, reader says
Regarding your story comparing the golf scenes in Phoenix and Tucson (Hold on Tucson: Phoenix offers better values than The Old Pueblo), it seems to me that in the interest of capturing the tourist dollars for golf fees, the powers that be have forgotten and ignored the residents of both cities and the local golfers that support the city golf courses when the city courses are empty because all the snowbirds are gone back to cooler areas. Summer prices are reduced minimal at best.
We are the ones that keep the city courses going and we get no respect. As residents we should be able to get affordable golf prices.
