Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS - STAFF RE­PORT

BELLA VISTA — The Joint Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee on Golf held a spe­cial meet­ing re­cently to talk about rec­om­men­da­tions for the 2018 bud­get.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Su­san Nut­tall pro­vided a list of some of the projects she would like to con­sider. Projects ranged from im­proved bunkers on sev­eral cour­ses to play man­agers. She also pro­posed a sys­tem to al­low golfers to check in via tele­phone. Other mem­bers of the com­mit­tee con­trib­uted ideas as well.

Mem­ber Mary Rior­den sug­gested the new gold tees, lo­cated clos­est to the greens for less pow­er­ful golfers, need to be up­graded with ac­tual tee boxes rather than just sig­nage.

Golf op­er­a­tions man­ager Dar­ryl Mul­doon wants more di­rec­tional sig­nage on all the cour­ses.

Ruth Hatcher, a board mem­ber who serves as the li­ai­son to the Golf Com­mit­tee, said re­strooms on all cour­ses could be up­graded.

Wil­liam Barr sug­gested more wild­flow­ers on the cour­ses along the high­way.

In 2014, the Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion elim­i­nated player as­sis­tants, also known as play man­agers, from the cour­ses be­cause of bud­get con­straints. Sev­eral mem­bers of the Golf Com­mit­tee would like to see them back.
