Golf rates for the 2012-13 fiscal year were put back on the table Tuesday in the city of Amsterdam and approved.

At a Committee of the Whole meeting in City Hall, golf commission members sat in the audience and discussed the work they'd done since the last Common Council meeting when council members posed some questions and concerns about the changing rates.

Golf commission member Mike Bucciferro told the council that one of the promotions they are putting out is a corporate membership, where five or more players who all work for the same company can receive the membership for $600.

Bucciferro said they are also increasing greens fees.

"All the increases for greens fees are up 5 percent along with the 5 percent increase for membership," Bucciferro said. "We anticipate meeting our budget number for the 2012-2013 season."

But, Bucciferro added, Mother Nature has a lot to do with that.

Third Ward Alderwoman Gina DeRossi, who acts as the council liaison to the golf commission, told the council that it may notice a 2 percent decrease for memberships, but that is realistic of the fact that the course has lost some members.

DeRossi said the course will make the loss up in greens fees and promotions, though.

Carts fees also have been increased by 9 percent.

Total anticipated income for this fiscal year is a bit more than $656,000.

After the meeting, Golf Commission Chairman Frank Natale said it took the council about an hour and a half at their last special meeting to come to rates and promotional information for the council.

"I'm very glad with the outcome."

At the Common Council meeting, the council approved the golf rates for this year, which includes the new rates along with rates for a "two-person family."
