Why doesn't the city have the Bill Self golf tournament Friday morning instead of Friday afternoon? It seems to me they would double the revenue by having it in the morning and have public play for the rest of the day.
Roger Steinbrock, parks and recreation spokesman, said the city has experimented with the start time for the Bill Self Golf Classic in previous years and has found that afternoon tee times have been more successful. Eagle Bend is available for public play prior to the tournament and, once the tournament is concluded, is open to public play for the remainder of the day. This year’s tournament started at 1 p.m. June 18.
