After crunching the numbers, these members at Cedar Hill golf course are paying $16.50 per round when I am sure $32 doesn’t quite cover the costs and the restricted members are paying only $11.25 per round and they complain.

As a taxpayer in Saanich there should be no subsidies for golfers at a public course unless you want to subsidize the private courses in Saanich, which charge more because golf is not a welfare game.
