More than 500 golfers have participated in an online survey about DeBell Golf Club as a consultant hired by the city to turn the troubled course around starts evaluating strengths and weaknesses.
A senior project manager for National Golf Foundation, which was brought on board in September, said the response has been strong.
“It’s too early to look at the results, but it’s one of the strongest responses we’ve received in comparison to other municipalities we’ve worked with,” said the project manager, Ed Getherall.
Among the questions asked in the survey are how often golfers use DeBell, how much they spend per visit, and if they play at other courses in the area.
The foundation also conducted a field visit in late October that included meetings with city officials, golf course staff and members of the DeBell oversight committee, he said.
