Community rallies behind golf course
“The principals in Sickles Golf Associates have allowed some of us from the golfing community to volunteer our time to see the golf course remains open,” Jarrell said. “I volunteered to help with the management of the pro shop and the course. Nobody likes to do the administrative stuff like recording tee times, so it’s one of the things I’m doing to try and help them out.”
Jarrell said the volunteers want to see the golf course succeed, and they’re not involved one way or the other with the litigation between the city of Susanville and SGA, the business entity that leases the golf course from the city.
“Some of us in the community want to do whatever we have to do to have a community golf course,” Jarrell said. “Our motivation is to have a place to play golf. The golf course is a tremendous asset to the community because it gives us an opportunity to play golf without having to drive out of town.”
Jarrell said SGA has some paid staff working at the golf course alongside the volunteers. He said the volunteers were already knowledgeable about their responsibilities or they are trained before they assume new responsibilities.
Even though the pro shop only opened last Monday, Jarrell said a lot of people are signing up for tee times and taking advantage of the monthly and daily green fees — among the most affordable in Northern California.
“We’ve already got a lot of people responding to the pro shop opening,” Jarrell said. “Obviously we won’t be successful unless people come out and pay and play.”
