Aberdeen town councillors are prepared to close one of the city's four muncipal golf courses as part of a further £24million cut back in city services in a belated attempt to balance the books.
Auchmill Golf Club is the only club based at Auchmill golf course and its officials have been given the option of leasing the course from the city or seeing it closed and greenkeeping staff withdrawn.
There is no mention of such a fate for Aberdeen's other municipal courses at Hazlehead, Kings Links and Nigg Bay, so presumably they are making money or breaking even.
Nigg Bay and Hazlehead are similar to Auchmill in that only one club is based at each but there are three clubs with clubhouses at Kings Links - Bon Accord, Caledonian and Northern.
