12/17/17 – The Mayville Golf Course could have a new operator soon. The common council has narrowed down the field to two candidates and hopes to make an offer to one by Monday. Last month, the city entertained bids to operate the city run golf course. The terms of the bid allow the entire facility to be operated by one entity or the operations of the golf course can be separated from management of the bar and grille. At that time, the council agreed to a buy-out plan to purchase Mayville Golf Club Inc. in exchange for the city acquiring their remaining debt. The group had been in charge of running the facility and their lease was expiring by the end of this year. The course has been plagued with drainage issues and declining membership numbers over the years. Mayor Rob Boelk says the city will be spending close to $110,000 to bail the operation out. Boelk says once a bid is awarded, the plan is to create a Golf Club Advisory Committee to offer input and insight to the management company.
