ABQ City Greens Fee Increase Looms 0

(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) June 22, 2012 — The Albuquerque Golf Advisory Board has approved a compromise schedule of city greens fee increases that will likely go into effect in early July.

The cost of 18 holes on weekdays will go from $22.50 to $25. The popular seven-day annual pass will increase from $1,434 to $1,580. The Monday-Friday senior pass will increase from $1,000 to $1,100.

The advisory board negotiated some reductions from an earlier City Hall proposal to raise rates up to 27 percent. The reductions were sought to eliminate an annual $500,000 operating deficit and make the city's four golf properties self-supporting.

The rate increase will go into effect after a public hearing and signoff by the city's chief administrative officer. That could take about two weeks.

Below is a detailed look at how all classes of rates and passes will increase, by time of day and day of week.
