HURRICANE, Utah (AP) -- A private company is taking over management of Hurricane's city-owned golf course.
The city council agreed to turn management over to Vanguard Golf Management Group because the course has been losing money for two years.
The city has operated the 28-acre course for 15 years. The land is under lease from the Bureau of Land Management.
Mayor Tom Hirschi says golfers shouldn't notice any major changes, though fees may be altered for weekend play.
The city will continue to hire employees and pay for expenses such as maintenance at the course. Vanguard will get $50,000 for its role managing the course.
Vanguard also manages a course in Lehi and Sand Hollow Golf Course in Hurricane.
