Administrators in the Town of Amherst are optimistic that its taxpayer supported golf courses will soon become profitable.

The town's trio of golf courses have lost money over the previous three seasons, with deficits rising to nearly $300,000 in 2011. The town operates the Audubon, Oakwood and Audubon Par Three golf courses. Administrators blame the lackluster performance at the courses to poor weather, competition from private courses, and ongoing construction projects that interrupted play.

The News reports that improvements to the courses and their amenities have been made and efforts are underway to improve customer service.

It is hoped that such changes will turn the tide, making these town operations profitable once again.
