We have a fabulous relationship with the parks dept. in Jefferson City, MO. They mow at least once a week in all the open area and our club does the rest. We trim trees and weed eat and mow the tightly wooded areas. We have work parties every other month and before tournaments to fine tune everything. We also pick up trash and move the full trash bins to the road and replace them with empties when they show up.
We're working on a second course now and I don't expect anything to change.
GOOD LUCK! Recruit some help and show the city you're willing to help out if they'll do the hard stuff.
