The Wilson Parks and Recreation Department is going to raise prices for seniors at the Wedgewood Golf Course on Saturday and Sunday mornings by 35% from $20 to $27. David Lee said you can play after 1 p.m. for $20. Seniors like playing from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. also.
Players 49 and under now pay $25 on Saturday and Sundays and that rate will go to $27 also — a $2 increase, or 8%.
Looks like war on seniors. I think Mayor Rose should look into this. I say if you’re going up, go up on everybody — every day, all seven days. Don’t penalize seniors who like to play Saturday and Sunday mornings. What goes up 35%?
