Aiming for the fairway

By Simone Wichers -Voss

The Bosque Valley Golf Course is presently in a bunker, losing a significant amount per month in the past three years. Dwindling membership, high maintenance costs in the drought have caused the local nine-hole golf course to make serious cut backs, like terminating the Golf Pro’s employment and stopping the popular Wednesday evening scrambles.
