WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The City of Wichita is starting its winter rotation of closing a different public golf course each week. The weekly rotation will last until late February.
The first golf course to be closed is Auburn Hills which closed last Saturday. It will reopen tomorrow, Nov. 9.
The City of Wichita says that a business that is so weather dependent has to find ways to cut costs during the winter. It says closing a different golf course each week will save money in the long run.
“We are monitoring the situation very closely, ensuring every step is taken to maximize our tee sheets and accommodate golfers all over the city,” said Troy Hendricks, Golf Division Manager.
Maintenance staff will continue to be on site during the closures.
This table shows the dates of each closure. While one course is closed, the other three courses will be open for regular play.
