Boca Raton considering selling municipal golf courses

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - Some city leaders in Boca Raton are pitching an idea that is not exactly scoring big for some city residents.

Some city council members want to sell one or both of the city's public golf courses to help balance the budget.

Some leaders say it doesn't make sense to provide a service that is not generating revenue.

They say the courses are not even covering operating costs, but staying afloat using revenue from previous years.

Selling the park land would be an unprecedented move for Boca.

But there are members of city council that say it would not be smart to sell in today's market.

In the past 20 years, Palm Beach County has only rezoned part of a golf course twice and never an entire course.
