Re: “It’s about more than golf” (letter, 2-23).

The letter writer attempts to make a point about how much out-of-town visitors playing at Chambers Bay golf course contribute in taxes each year. He suggests that the golfer from Chicago might be asked what hotel he stayed in, where he ate his meals, if he rented a car.

The pertinent question is, “Was his (and other visitors’) primary reason for being in town or staying longer to play the Chambers Bay golf course?” If not, the writer’s point is muted.
