For the first time in five years, Pleasanton residents will see a bump in greens fees at Callippe Golf Course.
The increase won't take place until January, according to Susan Andrade-Wax, Pleasanton's director of Parks and Community Development.
"It's just a buck," Andrade-Wax said, adding the cost at Callippe is still the lowest of all area golf courses. Non-residents saw an increase three years ago.
Andrade-Wax noted that the course had seen increases in costs, including a hike in water rates.
A city report said water rates are expected to jump 32% in 2010-11, that fertilizer costs have climbed, and employee costs are gradually increasing.
Also, the report said, most of the turf maintenance equipment and computer cashing system is in need of replacement.
The increases are expected to bring in an additional $63,000 to $65,000 a year.
