It will soon cost Winnipeggers an extra toonie for a round of golf at city-run courses.

City officials say the increase will help cover much-needed repairs at the courses and ultimately increase competitiveness in the market, citing some of the lowest rates in Winnipeg.

The $2 hike will apply to all green fees at city-run courses, including Windsor Park, Crescent Drive, Harbour View and Kildonan Park.

Revenues from the increase will be put into a golf course reserve, which will be used to fund capital improvements, repairs and upgrades.

The work will include, but is not limited to, the replacement of course maintenance equipment, with 23 pieces of new equipment required (Windsor Park, Crescent Drive, Harbour View and Kildonan Park), clubhouse refurbishment (Windsor Park and Kildonan Park), multiple drainage projects, tee box rebuilding and the completion of auto cart pathway networks (Windsor Park and Kildonan Park), and irrigation system and pump house repair/replacement (Crescent Drive and Harbour View).

The increase will be effective July 20 and Winnipeg Golf Services estimate around $81,000 will be raised from the rest of this season and double that amount in future years.

Winnipeg Golf Services will honour all game passes sold and tournaments reserved before July 20 at the lower rate.
