In a 10-0 vote on Tuesday, Brantford, Ont. city councillors recommended putting $3.55 million into renovations of two city-owned golf courses when budget deliberations begin later this month and into December. Mayor Chris Friel said it's time for talk to give way to action in improving both the Northridge and Arrowdale municipal golf courses.
Potential renovations to Brantford, Ont.'s two municipal golf courses will be discussed by city councillors who will decide if the matter warrants inclusion in 2018 budget deliberations. Proponents of the renovations argue both Northridge and Arrowdale municipal courses are self-sustaining, and money poured into renovation projects is a good investment.
