Waynesboro Municipal Golf Course fees are increasing to help the course balance its budget. On Wednesday, the Waynesboro Borough Council approved fee changes for the coming year. Each round of golf will increase by $1.50. That makes a weekday, 18-hole game $14.75. Annual membership rates also will be on the rise. The council approved raising that rate by $25, bringing it to $350 for a single membership. The senior citizen and junior rates are $300 per year. Between 9,000 and 10,000 rounds are played per year at the golf course off Cemetery Avenue, according to Assistant Borough Manager Jason Cohen.

Bear killed on golf course FREDERICK, Md. - The Maryland Department of Natural Resources killed a bear Saturday afternoon, fearing that it was dangerous. The bear, which had tags on its ear from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, was seen walking in the woods between Grove Hill Road and the VFW golf course in the morning, Frederick Police reported. Frederick Police and animal control officers called the Department of Natural Resources for help. Around 9 a.m., the bear wandered through the golf course, limping with an injured right hind paw. Unable to get a tranquilizer gun, DNR officers killed the bear at about 1 p.m. because it was near a residential area along U.S. 40 and because of its "possible vicious nature," police said.

One thing is for certain in 2013: There will be a new Herald-Mail Washington County Golfer of the Year when it comes time for postseason awards. Gone from the county's prep golf scene is three-time player of the year Aaron Staley, a North Hagerstown graduate now at McDaniel College. A couple of golfers are likely candidates for the honors as the season begins. That said, there are not many players returning who earned all-county first team or honorable mention honors in 2012. North Hagerstown senior Drew Miguel is the lone individual on last year's first team returning in 2013, and he'll be the top Hub as the team attempts to earn a trip to the Maryland Class 4A/3A state finals.
