Welcome to District 3
newsletter will focus on one project of significance to Golden Gate City and all of the residents of Collier County who play golf or have visitors that golf. The County Commission will consider whether to accept a response to the County’s invitation to negotiate from Club Corp to build and operate a county owned golf course. Fees for County residents will be set by the Collier County Commission and will be substantially less than fees charged at other public golf courses in the county. The County Commission will vote on this project at its regular meeting on April 27.
Those interested in this project should email all County Commissioners to voice your opinions. Click here to find Collier County Commissioner emails.
The County Commission purchased the existing Golden Gate Golf course and has endeavored to re-establish public golf on a course to be redesigned for the benefit of all Collier County golfing enthusiasts looking for a great course at an affordable price. If successful in developing this course, this will be the culmination of decades of efforts to bring affordable golf to Collier County as part of the County’s park and recreation program.
Though course construction is estimated to cost in excess of $14 Million, the County will only be required to contribute $7 Million towards the project. Club Corp will fund the balance and operate the course pursuant to a long-term lease. Collier County will own and control the course. Club Corp will develop a family entertainment and dining venue as part of the golf course development and will pay substantial concession fees to the County.
Your input is important in all decisions made by the County Commission. Don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns about this project.
Thank you for helping to make Collier County a great place to live, work and play.
