We have learned that TLPOA director Joe Krill has an idea to transform one of the golf courses at Treasure Lake.
He talked about his idea at the March TLPOA meeting.
Krill said it makes no sense to keep having two golf courses, when fewer and fewer people are playing golf. Treasure Lake needs to get with the times and chart a sustainable course for the future. Diversifying its attractions is one important way to do that.
He said by having more diverse offerings that are more consistent with what people actually want, Treasure Lake will be far more attractive to potential property owners. Two golf courses is outdated, plain and simple.
Krill said, the TLPOA could convert one of the existing golf courses into a park with walking and biking paths, pavilions for picnics, a children’s playground along with ponds and benches and a fenced in area for dogs to run and play.
He said the golf courses are essentially parks now but without amenities that can be enjoyed by all Treasure Lake property owners.
With regard to maintaining and financing, the cost for maintenance will be minuscule in comparison with the routine maintenance of a golf course and the planned irrigation system for the Silver Course, he said.
Krill is asking that the Treasure Lake Board of Directors compose a ballot initiative for this year’s election of Treasure Lake Directors that states: “If the Treasure Lake Board of Directors determines that it is fiscally unsound to continue financing one of the two existing Treasure Lake golf courses would you support our decision to convert it to a community park/nature area?”
