Golonski said consultants determined that the course should be able to sustain about 60,000 rounds, compared to the roughly 51,000 rounds played now.
The physical conditions of the course were also among the items discussed in the roughly 130-page report. Among them:
• The irrigation system is outdated and, although it is not urgent, likely will need to be either replaced or upgraded in the coming years. Improving the irrigation system could also help reduce the large utilities expense for DeBell, estimated at about $400,000.
• There are too many trees on the DeBell golf property, affecting the condition of the course in some places with too much shade and impeding the ease of play, with very narrow holes making the course difficult for golfers to score well.
