Last week, Madison Common Council approved the sale of 18 holes of the Yahara Hills Golf Course to Dane County for use as a future landfill, compost site and sustainable business park. The proceeds of the sale, about 5.5 million dollars, will go to the city’s Golf Enterprise Program, a government fund intended to be self-supporting through fees it collects in exchange for goods and services.
Lisa Laschinger is the Assistant Superintendent for the Parks Division of Madison. The Parks Division manages the four public golf courses in Madison, as well as the Golf Enterprise Program.
