City amends annual golf course membership fees

The city of Susanville announced new annual membership fees Thursday, May 28 in light of its late opening date.

According to a statement from the city, “The current/amended Diamond Mountain Golf Course fees for the 2020 golfing season: $1,104 (individual); $1,362 (individual with cart); $1,572 (couple); and $1,836 (couple with cart).”

“It is with great pleasure that I announce an amended fee structure for annual memberships at the Diamond Mountain Golf Course,” wrote Kevin Jones, interim city administrator. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city was unable to fully open the Diamond Mountain Golf Course on April 1, as it has in the past (depending on weather). The course was officially opened with staffing on May 15, 2020.”

Jones said the city amended the fee structure due to the opening delay.

“On May 27, the city council met to consider the requested fees,” Jones wrote. “The council adopted the recommended (amended) fee schedule pertaining to the annual rates. This fee structure goes into effect immediately and only pertains to annual memberships.”

Jones reminded the public the golf course observes safety measures consistent with the state of California and Lassen County Public Health’s guidelines.

Jones also wrote, “Although there is no specific timeline to predict when tournaments may be held, people/organizations can reserve dates, but with no guarantee the course will be open to such on the date of the event.”
