Park District golf faces day of decision | JournalStar

GolfVisions representatives described their season-pass plan in which golfers could choose from a varied level of customized passes. They might include a pass for all-access, for one course, for seniors, for juniors or for late afternoon play among other options. Punch cards for limited play would also be made available.

With these different types of passes, the company hopes to lessen season-pass use during the peak playing hours of 6-9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday to open some of those higher-cost tee times to the public.
