Chambers Bay has another tough month

As we reported last Sunday, Pierce County’s Chambers Bay Golf Course has struggled to meet budget in 2008. Looks like the course ended May even deeper in the hole.

County officials expect the course to lose money in the off season, and budget accordingly. They believe it will more than make up for those losses during the busy summer months.

But the hole this year is a little bigger than expected. Through May, the course had lost about $240,000 so far this year. That’s about $118,000 more than budgeted.

County officials say cool weather has meant fewer golfers than expected. According to the new report, the course has seen more than 700 fewer rounds of golf played than budgeted so far this year.
