Pole Creek Golf Course to offer 20 Super Passes
May 27, 2009
On Tuesday night, the Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District board approved the sale of 20 Super Passes for the Pole Creek Golf Course.
The passes sell for a little less than $10,000 a piece and pay for 50 rounds of golf a season for five years.
The cost divides out to $23 per round, plus $16 for the cart. Fraser Rec District residents now pay $32.50 for a round of golf without a cart.
Only 20 Super Passes will be sold each year. The pass will be offered to district residents first, then to Grand County residents, then opened to the wider golfing public.
Passes cost $9,750 and the rounds are transferable. Any rounds that aren’t used by the end of the season can be used as a tax write off, said Pole Creek General Manager Larry Burks.
“What this really means,” Burks said, “is that 20 passes will create $195,000 worth of revenue, which is quite a bit of money to get in one season.
“We can use that money to tackle some projects and defray the cost of the clubhouse.”
Burks said he sees the Super Pass as more a corporate purchase than something for an individual.
It took nine months to complete the new Pole Creek Golf Course Clubhouse, approved by voters in a recent bond election. The clubhouse opened on Saturday for Memorial Day weekend.
Burks said it was a good revenue weekend for the golf course.
“Better than last year,” he said.
