Pool, golf course rates to increase

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Rates at Waynesboro Municipal Golf Course and Northside Pool will increase in 2007 to keep up with competition and accommodate wage increases in the new year, a representative of the parks and recreation committee said.

Mike Forney of the parks and recreation committee said daily rates for golf will increase 10 percent, but membership rates will stay the same.

Raising only the daily rate for golf, he said, will keep the course competitive with neighboring clubs, including Conocodell Golf Club and Monterey Country Club.

Forney also said both daily and membership rates for Northside Pool will increase by 5 percent.

The rate increase at both the golf course and the pool will primarily generate funding to off-set the scheduled January increase in the minimum wage, he said.
