The article about the new golf course at City Park in New Orleans does not mention what the green fees may be.

I have played golf there for many years, and the fees have always been very affordable. The Bayou District Foundation, a nonprofit, wants to charge fees that are way out for a public course built on public land with taxpayer dollars.

There are many courses in the metro area where you can play for reasonable rates. I hope the rates at City Park will be more in line with these courses. If not, they will not make the expected profit they are hoping for.
