As Madison’s four municipal golf courses continue to lose money, the city is looking for ways to get them out of the rough, including possibly selling part of one to pay for renovations at the largest and most under-performing course.

While the discussions are preliminary and there is no formal proposal, the nine-hole Monona Golf Course could close to help pay for millions of dollars in repairs and renovations officials say are needed at the deteriorating 36-hole Yahara Hills Golf Course. Yahara Hills has been the biggest contributor to losses of more than $1.4 million by the city’s golf courses since 2010.
