Westview Golf Course numbers hit 15 year low

With declining numbers, Quincy Park District officials are taking a hard look at Westview Golf Course.

Officials said over the last 15 years, number of rounds played per year have gone down at an alarming rate. Officials say last year, the course didn't even hit 30,000 rounds played. They said there are a number of factors as to why.

"People are busier. People don't have the three and half to four hours to play a round of golf. Sports are year round now. It's an aging population. The core group of golfers are getting older and the younger generation is not coming in and playing that many rounds of golf," said executive director Rome Frericks.

Officials said even with the decline in rounds played, they have remained profitable and there are no current plans to close the course or any major changes to operations at Westview.
